The College produces three annual publications, which it sends to Current and Old Members free of charge. If you are an Old Member of Balliol and you would prefer not to receive a printed copy of any of these magazines, and and instead be notified when they become available online, please email the Development Office.
You can read about other publications relating to the College here.
Floreat Domus is a colour magazine with news and features about the Balliol community, including articles about current developments in the College, student news, Balliol’s history, books and research by College Members, stories about Old Members and activities organised for them. It is published in early summer. A PDF and links to previous editions are given below.
