Frequently Asked Questions about Development and Alumni Relations.
Who is considered an alumnus/a and how do I become one?
We consider an alumnus/a as someone who has studied at Glasgow Caledonian University or one of its founding institutions. This might include postgraduate, undergraduate, short courses or Continual Performance Development programmes.
Once you have studied or graduated from Glasgow Caledonian University you are automatically considered an alumnus/a from the University. Soon after graduation you will receive a welcome letter and magazine detailing the benefits and activities available for alumni.
I am a graduate and would like to use the gym facilities, do I get a discount?
All graduates from Glasgow Caledonian University and its founding institutions are able to get discounted rates for use in the Arc Sports Centre. Remember to bring your old matriculation card or some evidence that you have studied at the University and you will be rewarded with a special alumni discount for use for the Arcs facilities. If you do not have your old matriculation card then don’t worry, staff members at the Arc will still be able to assist you. Alumni Arc Membership can be found here
