The launch of Leicester Connect - An online community for Leicester alumni

Posted by tac22 at Aug 22, 2017 01:45 PM |
Leicester Connect is designed to help alumni stay connected with the University of Leicester and fellow graduates from around the world.

What is Leicester Connect?

This dedicated online social platform gives you access to university news, information about alumni chapters, careers advice, and, via the Professional Mentoring Service, gives you an opportunity to become a mentor for students.

Leicester Connect is managed by the Alumni Relations team at the University and enables you to 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 individual employers too, allowing you to build upon 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

Firstly, look out for an announcement on social media notifying 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 (allowing you to automatically pull information from these profiles) or your email address.

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