Dining Rights

Dining Rights entitle alumni to dine at High Table up to three times a year with no charge for food or wine. You can dine on any three Thursdays or Sundays in each academic year during Full Term and you may bring one guest in place of one of these occasions. Drinks are from 7pm in the SCR and dinner is served at 7.30pm. The dress code is ‘smart’; non-resident members do not need to wear gowns.
