Alumni Discounts & Perks

Whether you’re interested in special discounts and offers, need to request university records, or are shopping for all the best Bearcats merchandise, the UC Alumni Association has you covered.

Check out all the great benefits and services the UC Alumni Association has to offer, and show off your Red and Black with pride.

Everyone in the UC Alumni Association family (all UC alumni) receives these perks and discounts:

Get discounts on insurance through our official insurance sponsor, Nationwide Insurance.

Our unique program allows you to see the world with fellow Bearcats without having to worry about any planning or added costs.

When you get your official UC license plate, you also support scholarships for UC students! UC’s share of the annual special-plate fee ($25 out of the $35 total) goes to fund scholarships awarded through the UC Alumni Association.

Discounted rates are available at some hotels near the University of Cincinnati area.

Hosting your meeting, conference or event at the University of Cincinnati provides attendees with a campus experience. Whether you’re looking for a large, contemporary space overlooking Nippert Stadium, or a more traditional event setting, Conference and Event Services staff is on hand to take care of all the details. As a One-Stop Shop, we provide you with one contract, one source of contact and one invoice for all your event needs.

Use offer code “ucalumni” for special ticket discounts to select games for Bearcat alumni and friends. No minimum purchase necessary. Offer only valid online.

Show the world you’re a Bearcat for Life with exclusive UC alumni apparel offered only through our online store. A portion of proceeds from each purchase goes to support students through the Darlene H. Carter UCAA Scholarship Fund.
