Alumni of Buckinghamshire New University may get involved and engage in any of Bucks Students’ Union services or activities as long as it doesn’t incur any additional financial costs.
Alumni may attend any and all social events, in The Venue, free of charge – unless otherwise stated on promotional material. Proof of student status, in the form of an old ID card, is required for free entry.
Alumni may seek free advice regarding issues encountered during their time as a student or with the University. Advisors reserve the right to refuse service if they feel the issues concerned reach beyond the specified parameters.
Societies and Sport for Fun
If alumni wish to take part in society or Sport for Fun activities, they must contact the Student Activities Coordinator (Recreational Sport and Societies) to discuss if their participation would lead to any cost or insurance implications.
Alumni cannot compete in competitive sports teams due to British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) regulations.

Alumni participating in volunteering or fundraising events may be encourages for certain opportunities but should always be discussed with the Student Activities Manager first.
