Welcome to the OU Alumni Association

Qualifying with the OU is a huge achievement – congratulations and welcome to the OU alumni family. You’re now part of a community of almost half a million OU graduates from all around the world.

As an OU graduate, you receive free, lifetime membership to the Alumni Association and can use this website to stay close to your University and the rest of our OU family. Many alumni find saving the website as a ‘favourite’ helpful – you can then check back regularly so you’re always up to date!

Here are just some of things you can do now that you’ve graduated:

1. Share your OU story

Read inspirational stories from your fellow alumni. What inspired you to study with us? How has the OU helped to change your life or your career? OU alumni have the most inspiring, incredible stories and we would love to hear yours.

2. Receive free career tips and advice 

The OU’s Careers and Employability team are on hand to help with full access to their services for three years after you qualify. So do take advantage of all the resources available now that you’re part of the alumni community. After that, you will still have access to a wide range of useful careers advice and resources.

3. Keep in touch by email

Staying in touch by email is one of the easiest ways for us to keep you updated. To ensure you receive the latest news, events, fundraising appeals, campaigns and ways to get involved, either visit the ‘update your details’ area or  email us at with the subject line ‘Keep in touch’. It’s best to include your PI number or your full name and date of birth when you get in touch.

4. Update your contact details

It’s also handy to check that we have your correct contact details and that they haven’t changed. You can do this quickly online by logging in or registering.

5. Read your latest alumni magazines 

Each issue is packed with news, features and free learning for you to enjoy. 

You can register for an online account for the Alumni Association if you haven’t already and then log in to manage your account quickly and easily. Remember, as you’re now part of the Alumni Association, you can’t use your StudentHome details on the Alumni website and will need to register for a new account. If you’ve got any questions, check out our Troubleshooting page.

Remember, you can always get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions for us. Congratulations again, you have earned your right to be here!
