Alumni & friends/Information/
Alumni Groups

Jesus College has a number of groups, run by and for alumni of the College.

Our existing groups hold regular events, send out their own communications, and come together to become supporters of the College. We encourage you to get in touch with them directly if you would like to know more. A list of current groups, and details of how to join them, are below.


1571 Society

Legacies have played an important role at Jesus for over four hundred years and our supporters’ generosity has helped shape the College we know and love today.  We owe a debt of gratitude to those who have remembered Jesus College in their Will. Your legacy is a deeply personal gift that will help the College create opportunities for future Jesus students for generations to come.

The 1571 Society was created so that the College could recognise and thank this special donor group. If you intend to make a provision to College in your Will, or are considering doing so, you are most welcome to join the Society at any stage of your planning. The 1571 Society is an opportunity to celebrate your commitment and is always open to new members. Click here to find out more or join.

Cadwallader Club

The Cadwallader Club was revitalised in 1974 with the aim of providing a forum in the form of an annual dinner for old J.C.B.C. members to keep in touch and, at the same time, The Cadwallader Trust was set up to receive contributions from Old Members to help support the current J.C.B.C. in view of the high cost of the equipment etc needed for a successful Boat Club. Contact us to find out more Cadwallader Club or its annual Dinner.


Hong Kong Network
