The Alumni Association was incorporated on October 16, 1947 at Lowell Textile Institute. On March 13, 1976 Lowell State College and Lowell Technological Institute merged to become the University of Lowell. On September 1, 1991 legislation was enacted to merge the University of Lowell into the expanded University of Massachusetts system. The University of Lowell merged with four other campuses (Amherst, Boston, Worcester, Dartmouth) to become the University of Massachusetts at Lowell. The Alumni Association is located at 54 University Avenue in the Alumni Memorial Library, North Campus, Lowell, Massachusetts.

The Alumni Association is an independent non-profit organization. The purpose of the Association is to advance the interest and prestige of the University of Massachusetts at Lowell, to foster cooperation and understanding among students, faculty, administration, trustees, and alumni of the University thereby resulting in a unified University Community.
