About the Alumni Office

We work with key internal and external constituencies building awareness, engagement and support for the University of Oxford by offering programmes of value to alumni throughout their lives.

We’re located in Wellington Square, and we’re part of the portfolio of the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Development and External Affairs, Dr Robert Easton.

In addition to the members of our team who sit within Wellington Square we also have an Alumni Board. This exists to advise the Alumni Office on strategy, with a goal of increasing and enhancing engagement amongst its global network of alumni. You can find out more about the Board and its current members here.
