Alumni Events

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ALUMNI AND FRIENDS: Following the latest government announcements and internal consultations about the safety of our students and alumni, unfortunately we do not anticipate that we will be able to run any in-person events for St Hugh’s alumni in the 2020/21 academic year due to COVID-19. We continue to monitor the latest advice and regulations and will communicate with our alumni about our plans. We are looking forward to hosting a varied programme of online events over the coming months which we hope will be of interest to many of you. Details can be found below.

For further information on any of our events, please contact the Development Office at or +44 (0)1865 613852.

September 2020

POSTPONED: Jubilee Lunch - 13 September 2020

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the forthcoming St Hugh’s College Jubilee Lunch for alumnae who matriculated in 1950 or earlier, 1960 and 1970 has been postponed (new date to be announced). While we are of course very disappointed that we will not have the opportunity to celebrate with our alumnae in person on 13 September 2020, the safety and wellbeing of our guests, staff and students is of the utmost importance, and we are looking forward to seeing you in better times.

While we may not be able to welcome our alumnae back to St Hugh’s this September, we certainly do not plan to let this special occasion go unmarked. One of the highlights of the Jubilee Lunch each year is the sharing of memories of St Hugh’s and hearing your stories of your time as a student. This year, as we cannot be together, we would be delighted if alumnae from invited years would get in touch to share memories of St Hugh’s with the Development Team, whether by email, telephone, video or post, along with copies of your favourite photos from your student days (please do not send us original photos). We plan to combine your contributions into a special commemorative presentation to be made available to all those who were invited to the Jubilee Lunch.

The Development Team is working remotely, however you can contact us as usual on, +44 (0)1865 613839 or by post to The Development Office, St Hugh’s College, St Margaret’s Road, Oxford, OX2 6LE, UK.

November 2020

POSTPONED: Reunion Dinner: 1973-1977 - 21 November 2020

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our Reunion Dinner for alumnae who matriculated between 1973 and 1977 has been postponed (new date TBC). We have emailed all those who had purchased a ticket with details of how to claim a refund. If your email has not arrived, please contact the Development Office on and we will resend it to you.
