From the moment you join The Oxford Union you become part of our heritage. Whether you participated in competitive debating tournaments, held an elected committee position, or attended the Society’s speaker and social events, you continue to be part of an ever-growing international network spanning more than 70 countries that explores issues and promotes critical thinking.

Alumni Life members can continue to enjoy membership benefits after graduating, from attending speaker events and debates to using the bar and library. All members are also eligible for reciprocal membership of The National Liberal Club in London - see here for more information.

Celebrating our Bicentenary Year - and our Alumni Community

As we celebrate 200 years of free speech, there is much to reflect on - from notable debates that have reverberated around the world to the guest speakers who have been questions and challenged by our members. Every individual who has passed through our doors has played a role in shaping The Union into what it is today; our past, present and future members are central to our heritage and history in the making.

In this historic year we therefore also pay tribute to our life members and hope to see you at one of our upcoming Alumni Events soon.

Staying In Touch

Over the past few months we have worked tirelessly to digitise members' records following a successful 'get back in touch' campaign and efforts by our Bicentenary Committee to track down many former officers and ex-committee members. In the coming weeks we will provide details about how you can sign up for our revived alumni mailing list. Thank you for your patience, we look forward to staying in touch during this historic year and beyond.

Hosting Your Own Event at The Union

In addition to enjoying your membership benefits, alumni are also welcome to enquire about booking The Union for private events - many of our alumni have returned to host private meetings, receptions and dinners, among other events. Members can also enjoy a preferential rate. For more information you can email or view our 'Private Hire' page.
