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 Communications Office is the 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

Giving back

Generations of Johnians have contributed to sustaining the College through their enthusiasm and through giving of time, expertise and money.  The support and donations we receive from alumni are crucial to us. Without donations, large and small, we would not be able to realise transformational projects such as the new Learning Resource Centre.
