The Development Office organise numerous events throughout the year, giving you exclusive access to thought-provoking speakers and interesting venues in Oxford and London as well as further afield.

LMH Local events also take place several times a year in local LMH 'hotspots' - we've recently visited alumni in York, Edinburgh, Exeter and Cardiff, as well as cities oversees. If you'd like to find out about any events in or near your hometown please get in touch!

Gaudies are dedicated each year to a different cohort, and your year will celebrate approximately every five years. Seven years after Matriculation you are also eligible to gain your Oxford MA, for which we hold a special ceremony and celebratory dinner in College.



In Spring you will receive a copy of the Brown Book, a snapshot of the academic year including news from fellow alumni. During later summer we also send the LMH News magazine full of news from the JCR, MCR and College life. We send termly e-bulletins keeping you up-to-date with LMH life, and you can connect with us through our Twitter and Facebook pages!



During Michaelmas Term you should have already been invited to book a graduation ceremony though Student Self Service by the Degree Conferrals Office.

On the day of your graduation we hold a breakfast or lunch (depending on the time of the ceremony) in College for you and your guests, and there will be an address from the Dean of Degrees and Principal or Vice Principal.

The Development Office will contact you a few months in advance of the ceremony and during the lead up to confirm all of the arrangements and details. For further information regarding graduation please contact
