Hughes Society

The Hughes Society is named in honour of the first donor to the University, Sir Walter Watson Hughes, and acknowledges our generous benefactors who continue this tradition.

The Society brings together members for a wide range of social, cultural and academic occasions, providing opportunities to meet like-minded people and engage with a dynamic community of students, staff, alumni and donors.

If you have planned a gift to the University, we encourage you to let us know, so that we have the opportunity to recognise your intended support during your lifetime, invite you to Society events and keep you informed about your areas of interest.

It also gives the University the opportunity to thank you today for your generous support which may contribute to ground-breaking research and will help prepare our students to become the educated leaders of tomorrow.
