Alumni and Year Groups
Reconnect with Keble
There are many ways of reconnecting with the College, from simply attending an event, to helping our current students with careers advice, or supporting our outreach work by volunteering as a mentor with The Access Project. If you’re a networker how about becoming more involved as a Year Group Representative, or joining our Keble Entrepreneurs group on LinkedIn.
Take a look at the events calendar and sign up for upcoming events. If you have a suggestion for a lecture or discussion topic, want to suggest a friend as a speaker, or have a suitable venue please do contact us. If you miss an event, wherever possible we are now recording lectures and making them available online. The full collection of recordings is available through the University of Oxford Podcasts Keble Series.
Summer Dinner 2018
All alumni receive an invitation to a Reunion Weekend in September, which includes a Gaudy, once every 5-7 years. The invitation will usually extend to ten-year groups. The groupings rotate so you will encounter a slightly different Keble population each time. Sometimes its good to be the youngest…sometimes not.
If you are coming to Oxford and would like to stay in College, our alumni are welcome to book Bed & Breakfast at preferential rates (email us for the discount code). Alumni are also welcome to dine at High Table at their own expense. More information is available via the Visiting College page.

All Matriculation Years since 1945 have at least one Year Group Representative. Year Group Reps help us to create a better network between alumni themselves and between alumni and the College. They help us to share news from College, the achievements of students, fellows and alumni, promote events and encourage participation in fundraising initiatives. With the 150th Anniversary coming up, we need all the help we can get to reach as many alumni as possible.
If you would like to know more about the Year Group initiative, or wish to contact your Year Group Representative, you can do so by contacting the Alumni and Development Office. Volunteers offering additional help are always welcome.
If you would like to find the contact details of friends and contemporaries, Veronika and Jessie in the Alumni & Development Office can help.
Alumni are encouraged to take their MA in absentia because there is a severe shortage of degree ceremony places throughout the year. If you would like to take your MA either in person or in absentia, you should complete the form for historic graduands (pdf). There is a fee of £40 payable to the University and £10 to the College for an MA conferral. You are only eligible to take an MA if your first degree was a BA.
