Frequently Asked Questions

Alumni Community

What does it mean to be a member of the Bentley University Alumni Association?

Every graduate of Bentley is automatically a member of the Alumni Association. That means you’re part of a network of nearly 65,000 alumni across the world. The Global Alumni Board, the overseeing body for the Alumni Association, includes leaders who represent the alumni community and serve as liaisons to the school.

Each year, GAB recognizes select Falcons for their outstanding commitment to Bentley and the world: The Harry C. Bentley Alumni Achievement Award honors graduates in a reunion year who reflect the tenets of Bentley University’s founder, and the Emerging Alumni Leader Award honors a graduating senior.

I've forgotten my alumni account user name and password. How do I retrieve this information?

Please email alumni@bentley.edu and a staff member will share your user name with you and reset your password.

Do I have access to an alumni email address?

Yes! You can set up an account, provided free of charge by the Office of Alumni and Family Engagement and managed by Gmail. You will need your alumni ID number to log in to your alumni account and create your email address.

How do I get in touch with former classmates?

If you lost touch with a former classmate, we can reach out to them on your behalf. Send all of the information you have to alumni@bentley.edu.

Can you send me Bentley swag?

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not on campus and are unable to fulfill swag requests at this time. We will update our website accordingly when we are able to resume fulfilling these requests.

Your Information

How do I let the university know about my new address, email address or job?

You can log in to your alumni account to update all of your information.

How do I submit a class note or story for the Bentley Magazine?

If you recently got married, got a new job or have other major news, email classnotes@bentley.edu to be included in the Class Notes section of the alumni magazine. To alert us to an impressive story — your own or a friend’s — to write a longer article about, please email alumni@bentley.edu.

What is my alumni ID number?

Every Bentley graduate has an alumni ID number, which is different from your student Bentley ID number. You’ll need this number to sign up for your alumni account, which gives you access to exclusive job postings, an alumni directory, updating your contact information and more. To learn your ID number, please email alumni@bentley.edu.

What can I do with my alumni ID card?

An alumni ID card is your personal passport to the benefits and services that are available on campus to Bentley graduates, including access to the library’s resources, select athletic facilities and more. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic Bentley is not currently allowing outside visitors of any kind to campus.
