Visiting College

Alumni and their guests are welcome to visit Keble from 7am to 7pm every day. Occasionally during the year we will be closed for College events so it is always best to contact the Porters prior to planning a visit. You can stay in College or have meals in Hall at various times as listed below.

Krista Karppinen and Daisy Eaton in the Alumni Relations Office are always very pleased to meet alumni so please do get in touch and let us know if you will be visiting the College. You can find us on the first floor of the Clock Tower in Pusey Quad.
