St John's College

Alumni and Friends

The fabric of St John's College is not merely created by current students and staff but all who have ever passed through its doors and all that ever will. We are here to ensure that we maintain meaningful relationships between our alumni and friends and the College for past, present and future generations.

The St John's College Alumni and Development office exists as a main point of contact for all alumni and friends of the College. We can help with queries about getting in touch with old friends, listing new opportunities to get involved, providing information on events (including reunions), providing a careers network, helping you to support the College and assisting in many different ways - even with your purchase of College merchandise! For any enquires, feel free to get in touch with us at

“Thanks to the strong community at John’s, I always felt at home as a student, and still felt that warm welcome when I returned for Summer Reunion. It’s always good to catch up with old friends in such familiar and memorable surroundings, enjoying the traditional formal dinner and a game of croquet on the Library Lawn. You can see that John’s is constantly changing and improving its facilities, but the essence of the community always remains the same – we all feel at home when we’re lucky enough to return! ”

Jemima, Geography 1984-1987
