Other alumni benefits

An update on dining privileges, 19 July 2021

Alumni of St John’s are welcome to access the College from 19 July. Please check the guidance on our in-person benefits page before visiting as some facilities are temporarily unavailable.

Dining privileges have not yet been reinstated for alumni; this will be reviewed in September. As and when they do, please make your dinner bookings through the Assistant to the Fellows’ Steward on 01223 338686, by email at FellowsSteward@joh.cam.ac.uk a minimum of 7 days before you wish to dine.


Two different schemes are in operation: dining at the Fellows’ table, and dining in the main body of the Hall at the MA table. The MA table is the option available for Johnians wishing to be accompanied at dinner by a guest. This document provides more information about the two schemes:
