How do I get in touch with my friends from the university?​

Due to the Data Protection Act (1998) we are unable to divulge any addresses directly to a third party. However, if you would like to contact any of your contemporaries and friends, we would be delighted to try and help and will let them know that you're trying to contact them.

If you would like to use this service, please email alumni@cardiffmet.ac.uk to see if we have details for the person you are trying to contact.

How can I organise a reunion?

If you'd like to organise a reunion for your friends/halls/course/club or year group, please contact the alumni office. We can check to see how many of your group we are in contact with, and give advice on venues, mailing lists, budget and accommodation.

If you've got an idea for a reunion let us know and we'll try to help. In our experience, finding everyone's contact details is the hardest part, so if it has been a while since you all last saw each other, try to organise the event with plenty of notice!
