St John's College


As an independent college, St John's is one of just two Durham colleges to have its own dedicated alumni office. Our permanent staff team is supplemented by interns and volunteers who generously give their time and expertise to support our work. If you'd like to make a donation to support the life of College, organise an event or offer your time as a volunteer, we'd be delighted to hear from you.

You can contact the Alumni Office on 0191 334 3119 or by email:
