Support United

United College considers as Alumni those students who have lived in our residences, who have graduated from our academic programs or who have been participants at GreenHouse or the WISC. We now have over 5,000 alumni worldwide. 

Many of our Alumni remain actively involved with the College, serving on the Board, the Alumni Advisory Committee, the Stanley Knowles Lecture Committee, the Golf Tournament Committee or on GreenHouse Social Impact Showcase juries. Over the years, Alumni have contributed generously to fund scholarships and bursaries, awards for GreenHouse entrepreneurs and improvements to College facilities.
