The University of Southampton


ORC graduates and staff stand outside the Mountbatten Building and Cleanroom Complex

As an alumnus of the ORC you are a one of over 600 people to have passed through our doors. Whether you were studying for a PhD, working as a member of our research or technical staff, one of our vital administrative staff, or maybe one of our many visiting researchers, you are a highly-valued member of our community.

The strength of this community is reflected by the long history of discovery and innovation we have as a result of the collaborative work of our research groups. We are proud of our family atmosphere and ensure that we find time to celebrate each others achievements and get to know one another.
