Save the Date for Homecoming Weekend 2019: #TheBlueout

October 4-6, 2019

Homecoming means catching up with old friends and reliving great memories. But it’s so much more than that too. It’s a chance to learn about University of New Haven’s world-changing work, to reconnect with affinity groups and clubs, to explore our ever-changing campus and to feel the energy of thousands of alumni who return for fall’s biggest event.

This year, we're hosting a weekend full of excitement, featuring alumni parties, exciting learning opportunities, special tours, open houses, the Homecoming football game, and much more.

Alumni Affinity Programs

Did you have an affinity to a student organization or club on campus? Here’s your chance to meet up with fellow alumni at Homecoming 2019!

University of New Haven affinity groups provide alumni who have a common interest or affiliation, whether through your degree, major, ethnicity, geographic region, athletic or student club involvement, a chance to foster and deepen these connections. Each Affinity Group provides a platform for alumni and friends to share their expertise and to network with alumni with similar interests or who are in the same field or industry. Affinity Groups also help support students through mentoring programs.
