2018 will be the 100th anniversary of the Roll, which is a very important part of Newnham’s history. Before women were finally given membership of the University and could have degrees conferred upon them, an entry on the Roll was the only evidence that a woman had attended College. A woman’s future could hang on the fact that her details were recorded on the Roll, and to this day the College Development Director also holds the honorary title of Registrar of the Roll and takes responsibility for its upkeep.
To celebrate this iconic moment in College history we will be holding a brilliant Open Day on Saturday 7 July 2018. Save the date now, and keep an eye out for event details soon!
