The annual Homecoming and Reunion, today highlighted by the recognition and presentations of Jubilarians (Diamond, Golden, Ruby, and Silver) and the Distinguished Alumni Awards, began on April 9-10, 1970, with the UP Alumni Conference.
In 1983, the homecoming was held at the Philippine International Convention Center in Manila. The next two reunions were held at the National Engineering Center in UP Diliman. From 1986 to 1992, the Fiesta Pavilion of Manila Hotel served as the venue; while in the following year, it was the UP Film Center. From 1994 onwards, the venue has been Ang Bahay ng Alumni, except for 2008, when the homecoming was held at the Araneta Coliseum to accommodate the larger number of alumni, faculty and others who celebrated the UP Centennial.
For the UPAA Centennial Homecoming and Reunion on June 22, 2013, two adjoining venues had been chosen: Ang Bahay for the reception and dinner; and the UP Theater for the program proper.
