Welcome to Alumni Friends

Since 1967, Alumni Friends has offered a welcoming community for people with a shared belief in the power of teaching, learning and research and its ability to create change in society. 

Alumni Friends has something for everyone: whether you’re looking to reconnect with your alma mater, give back through volunteering, hear from a range of UQ experts on your favourite topics, or meet a group of like-minded people working together to make a genuine difference.



While the greatest benefit of Alumni Friends membership may be the people you meet, joining will also ensure you're part of creating a lasting legacy at The University of Queensland and supporting a stronger society through education.
A key focus of Alumni Friends is to ensure world-class tertiary education is inclusive and accessible. Funds raised by Alumni Friends have supported many important awards, prizes and scholarships, ensuring students can achieve their aspirations of studying at UQ.
A milestone event for Alumni Friends is the annual UQ Alumni Book Fair. Members of Alumni Friends are an essential part of the volunteer team who work behind-the-scenes of the Book Fair – bringing the event and its mission to fundraise for UQ initiatives to life!
A series of events tailored for Alumni Friends members, 3T Events provides an opportunity to become part of a regular community program held at UQ's St Lucia campus. With topics ranging from the history of the Olympics to the importance of native bees, there's something for everyone.

Friends of Antiquity

Established in 1989, Friends of Antiquity is a special interest group of Alumni Friends which celebrates and supports the study of classics, ancient history, and antiquities at UQ.

Members of Friends of Antiquity have established and maintained an important legacy of championing the study of Classics and Ancient History at UQ through a volunteer-led engagement program. While Friends of Antiquity's impact is recognised to be much broader than monetary figures, over the decades the group has raised over $400,000 in support of UQ's classics, ancient history, and antiquities offering.

Alumni Friends Leadership Board

The Leadership Board informs the direction of alumni engagement and fundraising initiatives, in consultation with the UQ Alumni and Community Engagement team. The portfolio includes fundraising and management of the Alumni Friends Fund and advising on community engagement such as the 3T Events program and the UQ Alumni Book Fair.
