If you live in the USA or Canada, then prepare for a visit: the University of Oxford is coming your way, with a series of special events across North America this March.

Mirroring the close relationships between the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, the University of Oxford has long maintained strong ties with its North American students, alumni, and friends. Students from the United States and Canada constitute a major group of Oxford’s international scholars, resulting in a broad and vibrant North American alumni community. Oxford’s North American Office, based in New York City, is evidence of these bonds and exists to maintain and build upon the valued connections between North American Oxonians and their university.

One way in which Old Members may take advantage of Oxford’s presence in North America is through our special events program. Throughout the years, we have and will continue to offer a wide variety of events, open to all of Oxford’s alumni and friends. Our events are a perfect opportunity to reconnect with those parts of Oxford that you most love and miss: debates, lectures, and reunions, where one can make new friends and catch up with the old.

This year, though, Oxford is coming to you. In March, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Andrew Hamilton, and the Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Professor Nick Rawlins, are crossing the Atlantic to embark on a cross-continent tour, hosting drinks receptions for alumni and friends along the way. Festivities kick off on Friday 15th in Montreal, winding their way through Canada and the US, to finally finish down in Los Angeles.

We hope many of you will come out and see us, and make the most of this opportunity to experience Oxford in North America. For further details and to register for our events, please visit our website.
