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.

Once A Johnian, Always A Johnian

Your connection with St John's College lasts long past graduation and you are always welcome here. The alumni team at St John's 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!

We would love to hear from you - 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. 

Make a donation to St John's.

If you would like to discuss making a major gift or are considering leaving a legacy to St John’s College, please contact Sally Jackson at 

Get in touch

We love to stay in touch with alumni and hear how you're doing! Why not let us share your news? Whether it be the announcement of a marriage or birth, or information about a book you've published - or something else entirely - we can share your news with other Johnians in the College Record, which is sent out to all alumni every autumn. Contact to be included in the College Record.
