Connect with Other Harvard Graduates

HCUK organises a large number of events throughout the year. These include our popular fixtures such as the John Harvard Dinner at Emmanuel College, Cambridge; live telecast of the Harvard-Yale Game; reception at the Houses of Parliament (sponsored by MPs and Peers with Harvard connections) and Global Networking Night. We also offer exclusive speaking events featuring celebrities or experts in their fields (e.g. Dame Darcey Bussell, Dame Kate Bingham); lectures by Harvard faculty (e.g. Dean Emma Dench, Professor Michael Brenner); theatre and performing arts events; and museum tours and concerts by visiting student a cappella groups from Harvard (e.g. Krokodiloes, Din & Tonics, Callbacks).  We celebrate and observe with our members cultural festivals such as Diwali and Lunar New Year. 

Our Recent Graduates Committee also sponsors a wide range of events targeted at younger alumni (e.g. Welcome to Your City, new admits welcome picnic). They also manage our social media and liaise with alumni clubs of other US universities. Please contact recentgrads@hcuk.org for more information.

We offer special members’ pricing on most events and offer priority booking to members for events with limited capacities.

Connect with Alumni with Shared Interests

In addition to Club events, some of Harvard’s Shared Interest Groups (“SIGs”) offer virtual and in-person events. Harvard has around 60 SIGs worldwide with a huge range in membership numbers. Unlike clubs which are geographically-based alumni communities, SIGs are organised around shared professional interests; identity and shared experiences; undergraduate-based music and other extracurricular pursuits; religious identity and other allegiances and interests. Unlike clubs, SIGs are non-regional. Many SIGs have chapters or sub-groups in different countries and they organise their own events.

SIGs that have active membership in the UK and that have partnered with us recently include:

There is also a broader calendar of virtual events sponsored by Harvard alumni clubs around the world which UK alumni can access if of interest.
