Whether you are a recent graduate wishing to continue your association with the College, or one of our earliest students from when the College first opened its doors, we would like to offer you the opportunities to remain linked to the community of Vanbrugh College.
Following the outstanding success of Vanbrugh College's 40th Anniversary celebrations in June 2008, we hope to offer future events and activities for all Vanbrugh Alumni.
We have also relaunched the Vanbrugh College Lectures. If you are interested in visiting the College to talk to our students, please do get in touch.
As many of you will know, 2009 saw the inclusion of Eric Milner-White Court (previously Goodricke Blocks A & B) into the family of Vanbrugh Residences. Vanbrugh across-the-water is now a thriving community of undergraduate residents. In 2010 we temporarily added Wentworth E Block to Eric Milner-White Court, bringing College Residence numbers up to over 700.
Vanbrugh College has become the hub of mature students, with space for mature students to meet and mature student only residence areas.
Vanbrugh College is becoming a home for garage bands! A room in the Provost's garage has being converted into a soundproofed rehearsal space for College bands and other music groups. We have invested in a suite of equipment for getting nascent bands started, such as microphones, a piano, electric guitar and bass amplifiers, to add to our drum-kit.
The second phase of our project, creating a recording studio, so students can take their music to a more professional level, is now underway. "Perhaps the next big British band will be launched from Vanbrugh" - we said when this project started, and we already have a band receiving national interest: PartyClub!
If you are a regular contributor towards the College Alumni Funds, or wish to make a one-off donation, please consider specifying this project on your donation form. We are very grateful to all those who have contributed towards this project.
You can also sponsor an instrument for our Instrument Lending Library.
With the redevelopment of the walkways and the foyer area, and the relaunching of the website, Vanbrugh colours have now been established as purple, with a teal accent. Historically, Vanbrugh has been purple and mustard, and more recently, bottle green. We hope that the new, modern colour combination will be with us for some time to come.
The Vanbrugh icon, once a hand-drawn sketch of a shield with rampant lions, through many incarnations, has now been finalised.
Call for Photographs!
