Alumni & Friends | Ngā Hoa Pīrata

Alumni email/data account changes: Due to changes to Google's agreement with Universities, the University of Waikato is moving away from Google services. As a part of this change the University will be deactivating alumni email/data accounts for those who have not been enrolled in the past 180 days. Affected accounts will be deactivated from 14 August 2023. If you are alumni AND a currently enrolled student, your account will not be deactivated. Please keep an eye out for communications about moving away from Google later this year. For more information, please visit our Google Account Lifecycle Changes.

We welcome the University of Waikato's graduates, staff and friends (including former Study Abroad and Exchange students) to our alumni and friends community. We encourage you to stay in touch with us as we seek to connect you with valuable learning opportunities to increase your knowledge and help you in your careers. With more than 90,000 alumni worldwide, this community also provides valuable opportunities to expand your networks and stay connected with the University. Alumni relations is part of the University's Development Office, which also looks after fundraising.
