You are here

Old Members are very welcome to return to Queen's, and on a trip to Oxford you may like to visit your old college.

Queen's is closed to the public so you may be asked to identify yourself on arrival at the Lodge. If you have a University Alumni Card, you may be asked to present this. If you do not, our Porters may ask you a few questions to help find you on our database. More details on how to apply for a University Alumni Card can be found on our Old Members' FAQs page

Alternatively, if you know you are coming in advance, please send the Old Members' Office an email so we can let the Lodge Porters know of your plans.

Visiting the Library

If you spent time in the Library during your time at Queen’s, you will probably have fond memories of your time studying here, perhaps especially of the Upper Library. 

Visiting the Library – Trinity Term 2022

During Trinity Term [2022: 19th April – 19th June] we ask that Old Member visits are kept to a minimum, this limits the disruption to students studying in the Library for exams. Please consider an alternative date to visit if at all possible.

At all other times

Old Members are welcome at other times of the year but please contact the Library direct prior to any visit to ensure that the Upper Library is accessible. You can email Library@queens.ox.ac.uk with details of the date and time you wish to visit. Or you can ring in advance of your visit 01865 279130.  Alternatively you can contact the Old Members Office by email

All enquires related to the College Archives should be emailed to the Archivist.

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to welcoming you in the future.
