Welcome to the Grey College Association

Grey College Association is an organisation designed to keep past members (alumni) of Grey College in touch with and provide support to the College.

Established in 1959 to support graduating members of the college for those first few years, the original President was the Master of the day, Sydney Holgate. As the number of alumni grew, the Association expanded and in time Dr Holgate stood aside, making way for a number of Presidents over the last four decades. The current President is Thomas Cliff, a College Tutor and 2001 graduate.

Each year the Association organises two reunions, one held in Durham and the other in London. Additionally, a magazine called Grey Matters is published annually and sent electronically to all College alumni — if you no longer receive a copy, please update your details.

A Message from the Master


As Master, I would like to thank the Association for the support that it has given to the College over the years. There have been many changes over the years, but the College remains a warm and welcoming place for people all over the UK and the world. I hope that you are able to take part in the Association’s activities in the coming year and be part of the Grey College community.  

Professor Tom Allen
