Fitzwilliam Society

Everyone who matriculated at Fitzwilliam is automatically a Member of the Fitzwilliam Society, which was founded in 1924 to keep Members in touch with each other and with the College.

The Society operates through a Committee, membership of which is open to all alumni. If you are interested in joining the Committee, please contact the Honorary Secretary via the Development Office.

Working closely alongside the College, the Society publishes the Fitzwilliam Journal and holds a number of events at which all Members are welcome, including an Annual Reunion in College held to coincide with the University's Alumni Festival in September; an annual London Dinner; and a London Drinks event. 

Most recently, the Society has been running a number of career initiatives to help Fitzwilliam students. You can get involved by signing up to be a member of the online Career Network or advise students at the annual Careers Fair in November. Alternatively, you may have an internship or work experience opportunity for a student at your organisation. Please contact the Development Office who would be delighted to hear from you.


The current Fitzwilliam Society President is the Master, Nicola Padfield.
