Association of Oxford University Pensioners

Herford Bridge

About the group

The Association of Oxford University Pensioners (AOUP) was established by the University of Oxford in 1985.

Its aim was to provide a way for employees who had retired from the University to keep in touch with each other and with their Departments and the University itself.

The University funds the publication and distribution of a Newsletter twice a year, and supports a series of monthly lectures given during the winter. This was a unique organisation at the time of its creation, and is still unusual.
