Alumni: The Development Office

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 we can continue to be at the forefront of education for centuries to come. Our office hours are 09:00-12:00 and 13:00-17:00, Monday to Friday.
