The Convocation Project

The University's Development Office is undertaking a large-scale project to reconnect with as many members of the former Convocation as possible. The University of London Convocation was the association of graduates established by Charter in 1858. Convocation was formally closed in 2003 and it has come to light that not all members were updated about the closure.

The University is committed to supporting its alumni and, in 2015, set up a new central Development Office to better respond to the needs of graduates of the central academic bodies, as well as members of the former Convocation. The purpose of the Development Office is very much aligned with that of Convocation when it existed, and as such, the University, through the Development Office, would be delighted to stay in touch with you.

Members of the former Convocation will receive a bespoke bi-annual newsletter. This communication is free of charge and would be in addition to that which you may already receive from your alma mater. Please see below for the latest edition of the Convocation Newsletter.

15 years since the closure of Convocation, the University is delighted to reconnect with all of Convocation’s former members. Since the closure of Convocation, the University has created a new Development Office to keep our alumni up-to-date on advances at the Central University and informed of opportunities to get involved. As a former member of Convocation myself, I am very much looking forward to meeting other former members at events held both here in Senate House and throughout the world, and hearing more about where your University of London degree has taken you.
