A Member for Life

When you matriculated, you became a member of College for life, and so the College will continue to create opportunities for you to come back and stay connected after your studies are complete. You are always welcome to visit College and the Development Office is happy to offer tours to returning alumni if you let us know you are in town.

Please let the Development Office know if you change your contact details, if you have any news to share with the College or if you are planning a return visit to St Edmund’s, as we would be delighted to see you.

You can also read our alumni benefits brochure, which contains some information on the various College, university, and Alumni Society benefits that you are eligible for as a member of the St Edmund’s alumni community.

Booking a Punt

St Edmund’s has three sea-worthy punts (thanks to your generosity during our punts crowdfunder!) that are housed in St John’s College. We are one of the only Colleges that allow alumni free hire of the punts through the season (April-November). If you are interested in reserving a punt, email the Development Office to make arrangements.

Accommodation at St Edmund’s

If you find yourself back in Cambridge, the College offers accommodation to alumni should you wish to stay at St Edmund’s. The College also rents out spaces for events & conferences which you can find out more about by e-mailing the Events & Conferences Team.

Alumni and friends of St Edmund’s are welcome to stay in College guest rooms at their own expense for up to five nights per year, subject to availability.

For further details and to enquire about availability, please complete the Guest Room Booking form.

Events in College and Around the World

The Development Office offers a range of events throughout the year from dinners and events in College, to socials in London, to regional events throughout the year as our Fellows travel to different places and where alumni are able to organise gatherings in their new homes. We are also excited to be able to continue to bring some virtual events to alumni around the world. Please, check our events calendar for full details; please, email events@st-edmunds.cam.ac.uk if you are interested in hosting a gathering in your area.

A Global Network of Friendships

If you ever want to get back in touch with friends from your time here, or come back to visit either independently or with a group, or are moving to a new city or country and would like to make contacts in your new home, drop a line to the Development Office and we can help put you in contact with Eddies Alumni wherever you are heading.

We can also support with Careers Networking – if you are looking for contacts in a particular industry, or open to recruiting, let us know. You can also connect with us on LinkedIn and take advantage of the University’s careers service.

Weddings & Christenings

It is always special when we are able to welcome you back to the College for a wedding or a christening in the beautiful Chapel and Dining Hall. Please email The Events & Conferences Team for more information.
