Leicester Connect - Your online alumni community

Leicester Connect Homepage

What is Leicester Connect?

Leicester Connect is designed to help alumni stay connected with the University of Leicester and fellow graduates from around the world. This dedicated online social platform gives you access to university news, information about alumni chapters, careers advice, and, via the Professional Mentoring Service, enables you to apply to become a mentor for students.

Leicester Connect is managed by the Alumni Relations team at the University and lets you search for friends from your class year, subject or country of residence, allowing you to discover what they have been up to since graduating and reconnect with them.

You can also search for fellow alumni by identifying skills, expertise and employers, allowing you to build your professional networks.


Other things you can do on Leicester Connect:

  • Find out about upcoming events, such as the small informal Leicester on Tour networking series, or larger, formal events, such as the annual Alumni Association Black Tie Dinner
  • Hear about interesting university news
  • Share stories and successes
  • Post your own photos, videos and events
  • Write blog posts for the platform


University events are also promoted on the platform; so if you want to visit campus for the next series of inspiring open lectures, or events like Literary Leicester, Leicester Connect will keep these listings up to date. Leicester Connect can also be used to organise campus returns or reunions.

2017 graduates have been the first cohort to be invited onto Leicester Connect. Alumni who graduated before 2017, can expect to receive invitation to join via email before the end of 2018. Please email the Alumni Relations team if you have any questions.


How to register

First, look out for an announcement on social media notifying you of when your cohort will be invited onto Leicester Connect. You will then receive an email, with steps inviting you to join the platform.

Here, you will be given a link to the platform, and a unique code that will allow you to set up your own profile. You can choose to register with LinkedIn, Facebook, or your email address.

Leicester Connect is a great way to keep in touch, and we want you to join!
