recurring events 

Alumni Talks

The Alumni Talks take place every year in the first week of October. During this annual event, three prominent alumni look back on their surprising, progressive, or eventful careers and provide a glimpse into the future of their field. An afternoon full of inspiration for every alumnus, UT student, employee, and other interested parties.

Twente Alumni lectures

The Twente Alumni Lectures is one of our newest traditions. Every spring, UT is visiting you! Researchers of the University of Twente travel across the country and abroad to share recent developments within their field with alumni, so one of the lectures must be close to your hometown! The next edition of the Twente Alumni Lectures is planned for spring 2022.  

Alumni day

Each lustrum we invite alumni back on campus to celebrate with us! During this Alumni Day, alumni have the opportunity to look around on the changed campus, meet students and have a glance in the inspiring research of our scientists. Of course, there is also plenty of room for nostalgia and meeting fellow alumni during this event. The next Alumni Day takes place on May 21, 2022.


Preceding the Dies Natalis of the University, we invite alumni back for a reunion to celebrate their special graduation anniversary with fellow alumni. Each year, we invite different groups for this reunion. Afterwards, we jointly visit the Dies Natalis celebration.
