The Alumni and Development Office exists to help Merton maintain and develop good relations with Old Members – helping you to stay in touch with College and with each other by organising events and producing publications. We also fundraise for the College, encouraging Alumni to support Merton so that it can continue to be at the forefront of education for centuries to come. Opening hours are 9am-1 pm and 2pm-5 pm, Monday to Friday.
