The University of Ottawa Alumni Association has partnered with several companies to offer services at discounted group rates.

Every time you use these services, you save money and support the University of Ottawa Alumni Association.

Our partners promote the services they offer alumni through the mail, the e-newsletter and certain alumni events. At no time will our partners solicit you by phone. Our partners do not have access to your personal information; mailings are coordinated by a third-party mailing house. We do not sell or rent contact lists to anyone.

Pillowpacker Pillows are designed for the discerning traveller. These premium inflatable travel pillows were invented by University of Ottawa alumnus Garry Logue and his wife Beth Shepherd, two frequent travellers and corporate-world retirees. After over a year of testing and modifying designs, and getting feedback from other travellers, Garry and Beth settled on their current design.

The pillows are proudly made in Ottawa with as much Canadian and U.S. material as possible. They are designed to be virtually a lifetime purchase, made of high-quality components while being lightweight, washable and rugged.

University of Ottawa alumni will receive a 20% discount on pillows and travel comfort accessories when they call 613‑828‑4104 with their membership/student number. You can further save on shipping costs by visiting the company’s Britannia location.
