The Role of Grey College Association

What is Grey College Association?

The Grey College Association consists of most graduates of the College from its foundation to the present day. Membership is open to staff, fellows, graduates and anyone of goodwill who wishes to support the college.

Keeping in touch

The Association exists to keep members in touch with college life and to give an opportunity to support the College in a number of ways – through reunion, communication and fellowship. To this effect an annual newsletter — Grey Matters — is produced where possible and sent to members. A number of sporting events are held.

There are at least two reunions a year: one residential in College, usually in April; and one at a central London venue in the autumn. Members are welcome to revisit the college whenever they wish.

Supporting College Life

The Association aims to be a useful part of college life by supporting current students and the college as a whole. This may be through offering voluntary time and effort, financial contributions and advice.

The Association:

  • Sponsors a number of Formal meals each year for current undergraduates
  • Awards generous travel bursaries to assist student projects
  • Runs the Careers Angels scheme to mentor and advise with careers.

College Governance

Under the statutes & ordinances of the University, the Association President sits on the Grey College Council Advisory Board, giving the Association statutory representation in College governance. The Association President is also a trustee of the Grey College Trust.
