Commemorative Biennium

Two significant anniversaries in one celebratory period.

Founders’ Day celebrations on 3 October 2019 marked the beginning of the College’s Commemorative Biennium period:

  • 2020 is the 90th anniversary of the signing of the founding document for The Dominions Students’ Hall Trust which is Goodenough College today.
  • 2021 is the 70th anniversary of the inauguration of the Lord Mayor’s National Fund for Thanksgiving which helped complete the foundation of the College through the building of William Goodenough House.

The College decided to combine these two major anniversaries into one celebratory period called the Commemorative Biennium. Taking place across two academic years to include both new cohorts of Members, the Commemorative Biennium lasts from Founders’ Day 3 October 2019, to Founders’ Day 4 October 2021. These milestones present a great opportunity to celebrate everything that makes Goodenough College so unique and special to our Members, Alumni and partners.
