About Homecoming

Fun, food, connections, and reunions! Homecoming is a celebration of Royal Roads’ past and present, bringing you home to organize your cohorts to meet and participate in the full weekend of events. It is an event that is open to alumni, ex-cadets, faculty, and staff from Royal Roads Naval, Tri-Services and Military Colleges, to provide a dedicated weekend for coming home.

Homecoming embraces tradition while welcoming the future. Celebrations are designed as a salute to familiar friendships, class reunions, the forging of new friendships, and pays homage to days past. We hope you’ll join us for Homecoming 2019 to reconnect with your Royal Roads family. We will be waiting to greet you in Hatley Castle with a warm smile and, quite possibly, a hug.
