In line with the recent establishment of homeworking and new life habits for so many of us around the world, the Nuffield Development Office will be physically closed until further notice.
While we will not be dealing with post and processing donations as quickly, we will still be able to answer any email or telephone enquiries you may have. As always, we would love to hear from you.
Most importantly, Monica, Catherine, Lottie and I are thinking of you all and hoping that you and your loved ones are keeping healthy and in good spirits at this difficult time.
Let's hope for another lovely alumni gathering in the not too distant future. In the meantime, we are thinking of creative ways to connect virtually with you, our alumni and friends.
With warmest wishes,
Caroline & the Development team
Former students and Fellows may dine at College up to three times an academic year free of charge. This includes either at High Table (which takes place in term time only) or Low Table. We will be delighted to welcome you, though please note that dining is always subject to space being available. Please give notice to the Development Office (email@example.com) by 12 noon the day before the relevant dinner.
Alumni are also welcome to take lunch in College from time to time, at their own expense. All additional meals are to be paid for (e.g. for a partner). Payment may be made either directly via the Finance Department or via an invoice if details are left with the cashier at lunch.
Former students and Fellows visiting Oxford have the option of staying overnight (B&B) free of charge up to three times an academic year.
Alumni are also very welcome to drop into the JCR when they are visiting Oxford. Come and meet current students, old supervisors, or just relax and read the newspapers over a cup of coffee. If you are not staying in College we ask you to notify the Lodge Porter and the Development Office of your visit, so that we know about your presence.
Nuffield College Library is always pleased to welcome back former members and will be happy to receive copies of your published work to add to library stock.
