Join our big hello... before you go!

We’d love to meet you before you leave the University, so come along to one of your Oxford Leavers events and find out what it means to be a graduate of the best university in the world!* (*yes we know others claim it, but you know it’s us!)

Why should I come?

Your connection with the University will last a lifetime (it'll always be on your CV, after all!) but the Fair and pop-up events will give you the opportunity to do three main things:

1. Collect your Oxford Card and get all the perks below

2. Tell the University how you want to stay in touch

3. Start your next chapter

To get the latest updates, follow us on social @oxfordalumni

Did you leave in 2019?

If you didn't make it to the Fair in 2019 to collect your card, don't fear! You can still obtain one by updating your preferences.

We'd love to stay in touch with you, and keep you up to date with what’s going on across the University from news to events and lectures to travel.

Introducing... the all new Oxford Card

New look Oxford CardThink of this card as your new best Oxford friend. Flashing this to the porters will get you into any college (not just your own) and it gets you discounts in restaurants, shops and bars all over the city.

Most importantly this gives you your Oxford number (8-XXXXXXXX) which you can use to sign up for your online account. Through this account, you can access online journals with JSTOR (that's for matriculated alumni only), subscribe to email newsletters from anywhere in the University and because we know you'll be moving about you can keep all your contact details up to date on there too.

Professional networking online

NetworkingWe don't want to limit your Oxford connection to just your college or your year group so we created an exclusive platform where you connect with Oxford alumni across the world. Find a mentor, search for jobs, sign up for events and much more.
