We’re helping University of Greenwich alumni to get back in touch.
Ex-students looking for old classmates can enjoy free and subsided people-searches on 192.com, accessing the contact details of over 30 million UK residents.
The university hopes to find many of its ex-students from the 1970s and 1980s and welcome them back for year group reunions. These will celebrate the university’s previous incarnation as Thames Polytechnic between 1970 and 1992.
Martyn Stephenson, alumni officer at the University of Greenwich said: “We are delighted to have such a powerful resource in 192.com to help us find and reunite ex-students. Our alumni are spread all over the UK and across 140 countries, going back some 70 years. We’re encouraging them to get back in touch to take advantage of the many benefits we offer to alumni, including the Thames Polytechnic reunions.”
Dominic Blackburn, Product Director at 192.com said: “We reunite thousands of families and friends and we want to help reunite University of Greenwich alumni. We’re particularly looking forward to bringing old classmates together for these reunions.”
The University of Greenwich dates back to 1890 with the formation of Woolwich Polytechnic, the UK’s second polytechnic. Known as Thames Polytechnic from 1970, the institution gained university status in 1992 when it took the name University of Greenwich. Alumni include the singer Natasha Bedingfield, the children’s writer Malorie Blackman and the 2009 Nobel Prize winner for Physics, Charles Kao.
192.com is used to reunite family and friends and enable ID checks. The site also helps reunite ex-servicemen from the Falklands conflict and in 2010 was represented by the world cup winner George Cohen MBE who helped 192.com to reunite fans from England’s 1966 world cup victory.
