Eating in College

Alumni are most welcome to attend meals in College. The process is currently the same as for students, though there are plans to introduce a new system later this year. For lunch and informal dinner, sign in on the sheet as you enter, making sure you print your name in capitals and tick the box for ‘alumni’. For Guest Night Dinners, find the relevant dinner on the events list – – and follow the instructions to submit a booking request. You will then be billed for all meals at the end of each term. (If a dinner is fully booked it is often worth joining the waiting list, though please note that you will be committed to paying for a place if it becomes vacant unless you withdraw before the cancellation deadline.) Costs per person are £10.50 for lunch, £12.50 for informal dinner and £37.00 (with alcohol) or £32.00 (without alcohol) for GNDs.

Alternatively, for an informal sandwich or coffee in a relaxed garden environment, try the new Hub Café. (Payment is by debit or credit card only.)
