More Pembroke news
We are deeply saddened to share the news that Rose Gough, Lodge Porter, died earlier this month. Rose has been a constant and welcoming presence at the entrance to Pembroke for almost ten years. Her striking ability to connect with anyone that walked through our doors gave her a special place in the Pembroke community.
Pembroke Student Delivers Summit on Advancing African Youth in Global Policy Making

Alumni Weekend 2022
We were pleased to welcome over 100 Pembrokians back to College for our annual Alumni Weekend, which this year was held in person for the first time since 2019.
We hosted a range of events, from our 50th Anniversary Celebration lunch for 1970-1972 Matriculants to the Uncomfortable Oxford tour.
Our Treasures Talk was a particular success. The College Librarian, Laura Cracknell, gave an entertaining and informative talk on artefacts from the College's archives, including a selection of Samuel Johnson's letters and essays.
The weekend also included a service of prayer and thanksgiving for Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, at which the Master read the Proclamation of King Charles III. The service, held in the Damon Wells Chapel, was followed by a black tie drinks reception and dinner in Hall. The weekend was rounded off by a tour with Uncomfortable Oxford.
We look forward to welcoming more of our alumni back to events in the coming months.
