Get involved

There are plenty of ways to contribute to your University, whether you have 30 minutes or a few hours to spare.

Why get involved?

Volunteering is an opportunity to give back to the University of Bristol community. You'll remain an active part of Bristol life and keep the Bristol experience going.

As a volunteer, you can help promote Bristol to future students and share your experiences with current students and recent graduates. You can also help alumni connect with each other by holding reunions and establishing alumni networks.
