Alumni card

Our alumni card helps you to unlock our campus and easily identifies you as a member of our community. You can use your card to borrow books from the Albert Sloman Library, join the gym at Colchester Evolve and it gives you access to campus based events like Alumni Sports Weekend, events at SubZero or The End. To find out how to access these benefits visit our alumni benefits page.
