Homecoming logo with dates

Homecoming is a time to celebrate Nipissing University and the many achievements of our graduates as we welcome them back to their alma mater. Nipissing University invites all alumni to relive their campus experience and for students, staff, faculty and friends to celebrate their campus pride.

This year we will celebrate Homecoming together from home – no matter where you are in the world — November 8 to 12, 2021.

Use the hashtag #NUHomecoming or #NUHOCO2021 when you post your memories and you could win prizes!
