Alumni Cards

Alumni Cards must be picked up on campus

  • Due to the alumni card only being useful for accessing campus, we no longer offer alumni card mailouts. You must come and collect your alumni card at UWL Ealing Campus. Please do not apply for an alumni card unless you intend to come to campus soon.
  • Please note, in order to maintain security, you must be in possession of a valid alumni card to access campus. To avoid disappointment, apply around two weeks in advance of your visit to campus, as it will take a while for your card to be processed and printed. If you are not local to London, we would recommend you pick up your card at campus reception when you intend to visit campus.

Stay connected to UWL by applying for an alumni card. Cards are free and remain valid for five years, after which time you can apply for a free replacement card. See below the Alumni card benefits and the application form to apply.

Please read the Terms and Conditions before applying for an Alumni Card.

The main purpose of the alumni card is to allow alumni access to general areas of the UWL Campus and The Library.

Please note, in order to maintain security, you must be in possession of a valid alumni card to access campus.

Please also note that the alumni card will not grant you access to restricted areas of the campus, such as the Lady Byron Basement or the Paragon Music Studios.
