Alumni Office response to coronavirus (COVID-19)

Following government recommendations, Oxford’s Alumni Office is now operating remotely, with staff working from home. 

We will continue to operate 'business as usual' as best we can: providing you with access to our digital benefits and services currently on offer and answering your queries as soon as we can. Keep an eye on your inbox for our regular emails (or sign up here if you haven’t done so already), and follow us on our social media channels for updates, just search for @oxfordalumni. We have also developed some handy FAQs below if you have a query. 

In these challenging times, know that we continue to be committed to supporting the alumni community. It’s at times like these that we are reminded of how important these communities truly are!

Sending our very best wishes to you and your families,

The Oxford Alumni Office
