Raised so far

Our goal




Thank you for supporting Alumni House

Thanks to your kind donations, and significant support from Professor Alex Zelinsky AO, over $64,000 was raised through Gifting Day to help develop a place of connection, celebration and conversation.

Alumni House will be an inclusive physical and virtual space where the community is welcomed, where the University gives back to the region that founded it, where we connect with local businesses and industry, and where our alumni - with their world-class education and unique University of Newcastle experience - are celebrated and welcomed home.

As the first dedicated alumni building of its kind in Australia, the University of Newcastle will join many of our international peers in providing a hub for physical and virtual collaboration, reminiscing and networking. Aligning with the University’s core value of sustainability, it will meet the requirements of the World Leadership 6 Star Green Star certification. Virtual Alumni House will ensure that this project has a global reach by making resources, events and activities available online.

Alumni House is our opportunity to create something unique and enduring. A gift for the community, by the community. Thank you for joining us in bringing Alumni House to life.
