Alumni Office

The role of the Alumni Office is to establish and enhance a continuing relationship between the University of Oxford and its alumni. There are more than 180,000 Oxford alumni, of whom about one-third are based overseas and this number is growing as the University accepts more international students and undergraduate and graduate level. We aim to provide all Oxonians, regardless of their college or subject affiliations, with an alumni experience commensurate with their world-class education and offer a varied programme of benefits, events and communications to help keep you in touch and involved with your University.
