In this special anniversary year all alumni and guests are invited to the Roll of Alumni Weekend to celebrate all things Girton. This is a fantastic chance for our alumni to return for an engaging weekend of lectures, music, and a dinner in the Hall hosted by the Mistress.

All alumni are welcome and we particularly encourage those who matriculated in the years 1959, 1969 and 1979 to attend and reconnect with friends and make new memories at a reunion at the Roll of Alumni Dinner .
