Get involved

Whether in Canada or abroad, there are many opportunities for uOttawa alumni to stay connected to their alma mater, build their professional and personal networks, and volunteer in meaningful ways that strengthen the reputation of the University.

The top 5 reasons to get involved in our alumni community

Show your alma mater pride. 
The University of Ottawa is unique in Canada and around the world as both a major research university and one of the rare bilingual institutions that influence Francophone higher education. That’s a reputation worth sharing. 

Meet new friends and connections. 
With so many events and volunteer opportunities, you never know whom you’ll encounter through our dynamic alumni community. Join us to connect, learn and grow!   

Find your next exceptional employee. 
Employers around the world use uOttawa’s Co-operative Education Programs to scout new talent and ideas from students across dozens of University disciplines. Help a student gain practical work experience and connect with the workforce of the future.    

Make a difference in the lives of current uOttawa students. 
All alumni were students once, and every student benefits from the generosity and contributions of the alumni who came before them. Will you continue the cycle of giving back?

Cheer on athletic excellence. 
We are the #GGNation! With 11 varsity teams, there are many opportunities each year to sport your Garnet and Grey and celebrate the Gee-Gees tradition.
