Upcoming Events

Homecoming & Alumni Weekend


Homecoming & Alumni Weekend

In the fall, alumni, faculty, staff, students, and their families celebrate their Purple Knight pride at Homecoming Weekend all around the University of Bridgeport's beautiful campus overlooking Long Island Sound! Homecoming offers many opportunities to reconnect with friends and lots of fun activities to participate in. It is also a great time to tour the campus, learn what's happening at the University and remember why you loved being a student at UB. Check out some photo highlights from the most recent Homecoming Weekend.

Homecoming Weekend 2021 is tentatively scheduled for October 23, 2021.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Jay Abrams at More details to come!
