Events & Reunions

Each year, Wolfson holds alumni events and reunions in the UK and around the world – opportunities to catch up with College friends, make new connections, and meet today’s students.

Our major annual events are the Wolfson London Lecture each March, Summer Gaudy in June/July, alumni reunion reception in September, and the Christmas Drinks in London each December. Alumni are also welcome to join the termly ‘Old Wolves’ lectures and lunches, and special lectures in College.

Alumni and their guests are welcome to visit Wolfson every day, 9am to 5pm. The Alumni and Development Team are always pleased to meet alumni visiting the College during office hours so please do call in. You can find us on the second floor of A Block, near the Common Room.

Join the Old Wolves

An 'Old Wolf' is whoever defines him- or herself as such, i.e., anyone with memories of Wolfson in former times, whether a graduate student, ex-Fellow, Emeritus Fellow, or member of staff, and whether currently a member of Common Room or not, who enjoys meeting up with other 'Old Wolves'. Old Wolves events are termly, normally on Thursdays.

The format is lunch, usually in the Hall, at 12.30pm, followed by a talk in the Leonard Wolfson Auditorium at 1.30pm. New OWs are always welcome: do come and join us.

There's no charge, other than the cost of your lunch. A table is reserved in Hall, and lunch is on a self-serve, self-pay basis (cash or battels card at the till). Liquid refreshments, including a glass of wine, are provided (no charge).

The College Archives team will be there to welcome you back to College. Places are limited so please book your place with the Archives Office.
