Activate your MyAlumni profile
MyAlumni – activate your profile to connect, share, learn and grow with the UON alumni community.
We want to stay in touch with our alumni all over the world and keep up-to-date with where you are and what you're doing. Since there are more than 125,000 of you in over 121 countries across the globe, that's a big job!
To help us stay in touch with each other, we've launched a new online MyAlumni profile that makes it easy for you to see and edit your details.
The first time you use it, you'll need to verify your identity and create an account. Then you can log in, manage your contact details, and tell us what we can do for you. Next time you have something to tell us, you can just log back in and edit the necessary details.
If you have trouble creating an account, don't worry. Just fill in this form to give us the information we need and we'll help you out.
How does MyAlumni work?
By logging into the portal, you're accessing your records that are held in our database. By keeping your information up-to-date, you'll receive information that's relevant to your location and interests.
You'll need to put in your full name, date of birth and student number or year of completion. A list of possible matches will be displayed. Choose yourself and enter an email address, then wait to receive a verification code via email, which you'll need to create your account. Just follow the instructions on the email and start updating!
What is MyAlumni for?
Apart from keeping your contact information up-to-date, we'd love to know where you're working and what you've achieved. The more we know, the more we can help. We can connect you with alumni in your area and help grow your network.
You can also use MyAlumni to do things you don't need us for – like registering for an alumni event in your area, ordering a replacement testamur, getting hold of your academic transcript, using the library or careers service, or nominating someone for a UON Alumni Award.
The profile is still brand new. It will keep growing and improving over time, so watch this space – and feel free to let us know what we can do to make it better.
Who can have an account?
We want to keep in touch with all of our alumni and friends, so anyone who is part of the University of Newcastle alumni network can create an account. This includes graduates, as well as present and past staff and council members of UON and its antecedent institutions (Newcastle University College, Newcastle Teachers' College, Newcastle College of Advanced Education). People who studied at UON but didn't graduate (like exchange/Study Abroad students) are also considered alumni.
The system uses your student number or year of completion for verification. If you don't have a student number (or can't remember it!), don't worry – there are other ways for you to get connected. Start by filling in this form.
What if the system can't find me?
While most alumni have an existing record in our system, there are always some that don't make it in – like exchange students, people who studied here for a while but completed their degree elsewhere, or former staff and council members. If that's you, we still want to keep in touch! Just fill in this form and we'll get an account sorted for you as quickly as we can.
What if I've changed my name?
UON's records will be held in the name you used while you were studying with us. This is one detail you can't change in the MyAlumni portal - we'll have to do it for you. If you've changed your name, send us an email to email@example.com with your name at graduation, your degree and your student number (if you still have it!) and we'll amend your record.
Is MyAlumni secure?
Yes. We are taking all the necessary precautions to safeguard your privacy. We take care to comply with all the relevant privacy legislation and will not use your personal information for anything other than the stated purpose, or share it with any third parties, without your express permission.
