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

If you have news to share, whether it be the announcement of a marriage or birth, or information about a book you've published, please let us know. We can share your news with other Johnians in the College Record, which is sent out to all alumni every autumn. Contact to be included in the College Record.

"Coming back to St John's is always an absolute joy. As well as being a place where I basically started my acting 'career', it's a place where I gained many lifelong friends, and returning to John's always feels like coming home. I only wish I could come back more often!"
