Everyone who studies at Reuben is a member of the College for life. There are various ways for our alumni to continue to be part of our community in the next few years, as well as big plans for events and networking as our alumni base grows.

Please send any queries to

Keeping in touch

As long as you let us know how to keep in touch, you will receive a digital copy of the annual College Record, as well as termly alumni e-newsletters. We will also contact you about any alumni events that we hold. For news in-between times, please do continue to visit our website and social media accounts.

We will primarily contact you via email and may contact you via post or telephone. If your contact details change, or you wish to change your contact preferences, please update your details by logging in to your My Oxford Online account. You can view the University’s privacy notice for alumni, shared also by Reuben, here.

For leaving residents of Farndon Court, with your permission we will pass Ray any forwarding address you have logged on My Oxford Online, so do be sure to update these details as needed.

Visiting College

In your first year after leaving, we would like to invite you and a guest to one Dining with Dinosaurs event. You will both be charged the guest price and should contact to organise your visit. Do remember do keep an eye on the website termcards to see what evening you want to choose, and give us enough time to process your booking – ideally, at least a week’s notice. Please note that not all Dining with Dinosaurs events will be open to guests, and should you wish to bring a guest please only choose an event that we can offer this for.

Secondly, on completion of the RSL, we will host a FREE dinner for our alumni to give you the chance to see our new home. Details of this will follow in summer 2023. Once we have moved, you will have many other opportunities to visit the College and we will keep you up-to-date in the termly newsletter.  As time goes on, we’re excited to welcome you back for student theatrical, choral and musical productions, and for sports matches, which again will be publicised in our newsletters.

Transcripts (and costs)


A transcript is an official summary of your academic performance and progress to date. It will only include final marks confirmed by the appropriate Examination Board. A transcript may be required by prospective employers or educational institutions to which you are applying. Find more information about accessing your transcript here.

The University of Oxford has recently developed a Digital Award Documentation service for providing degree certificates, transcripts and verification of degrees. This allows students and alumni to view, download, and print their electronic degree certificates and transcripts online, share a degree confirmation letter, and allow third parties (such as employers, other universities, and government agencies) to verify their degree status. This costs a one-off registration fee of £15 in addition to the costs noted below. 

Costs as of 1 August 2023 (Please note that a cost uplift was implemented on this date)

Document type 


Digital verifications, transcripts provided to third parties (eg employers) through the eDocuments service 


Manual verifications provided to third parties (eg employers) 


Certificates (replacement degree certificates, MA, Incorporation) 



For those who have registered for My Oxford Online, there is a discounted price on branded degree certificate frames via Jet Photographic online.

In the longer term...

As the number of alumni expands, we will grow our alumni offer. We would love to hear what you would like the College to offer. Ideas include:

  • Regional and oversees meetups
  • Theme-based gatherings.
  • A mentoring scheme which will draw on the diverse interests and expertise of our alumni.
