Unicon is a series of British university-based science fiction conventions, launched as a one-off event - Unicon 80 - at Keele University in 1980. Following two follow-up events at the same venue (Unicon 2, 1981; Unicon 3, 1982), the series was opened up to outside groups. The first of this new series, Unicon 4, was held in the University of Essex at Colchester in 1983, followed by Oxcon 84, and Camcon in 1986.

The most recent was named Constitution and held in New Hall, Cambridge on 31 July-2 August 2009. The previous Unicon was Mecon at Queen's University, Belfast in August 2008. The 2007 Recombination was also held in New Hall.
