You are required to sign a contract with the College prior to your arrival.  We would also like you to complete a general registration form.  Details about the contract can be found in the link on the left and the link to the contract and registration form can be found below.

You are also required to complete a University Contract/Card form.  This will be used to produce your University (or Bod) Card which will provide you with access to libraries but will also be your student ID card so do make sure the photograph you use is one that you will be happy with for ID purposes.  Prior to signing the form you should read the separate University Terms and Conditions.

Financial declaration
Home students must complete a Financial Declaration Form detailing how they will pay their fees and return this by 30 August.

Freshers' dinner
The Freshers' welcome dinner is held on Friday 11 October and is an opportunity for you to meet other Freshers and some of the College's Fellows in a formal but relaxed environment.

Medical information
The College takes the health and welfare of students seriously and provides support in various ways.  The Welfare Guide provides lots of informaiton and can be downloaded via the link below.  There are several senior members of the College you can go to for welfare advice but for all medical matters there is a College Doctor (see below) and a College Nurse (Midge Curran).
All members of the College are entitled to the benefits of the National Health Service, provided they will be resident in college for at least six months. You are required by the University to register with an Oxford medical practice.
The College doctor is Dr Naomi Drury, 9 King Edward Street, Oxford (tel. 01865 242657). If you register with a medical practice other than the College doctors, you must inform the College of its name and address.

General information
Arriving in Oxford as a new student can be daunting.  We have produced lots of information that we hope you will find useful; however, should you have any questions do contact Rachel Clifford, the Academic Registrar, who is responsible for all matters concerning undergraduate students and has a wealth of information at her finger tips!

Driving into Oxford
Driving into Oxford can be difficult at the best of times but is even more so when 100s of students are being dropped off for the first time.  Certain parts of the High Street are closed to cars; if caught driving through the restricted area you could be fined up to £60.  More details on driving, parking and a map of the city centre can be found here.

University student handbook

When you received your University Offer (through UCAS or your departmental offer letter) you were provided with a link to the Student Handbook. This document is updated annually and the updated version for 2019-20 can be found here:  We need to formally draw your attention to some updates that have been made: these include the new Student Resolution Service (section 3.1) and new Student Protection Plan (section 11.8), minor changes to the appeals procedure for alternative examination arrangements (section 8.2),  and significant amendments to the Disciplinary Procedures and Rights (Chapter 10). The changes to the Disciplinary Procedures and Rights section are to reflect the University’s new disciplinary procedure and changes to the relevant Statutes and Regulations to be introduced for the 2019-20 academic year. In particular the changes include; a 6 month time limit for bringing complaints of breaches of the Code of Discipline; broader provisions for accompaniment and/or representation at interviews and hearings; changes to when a Proctors’ Disciplinary Hearing is available as an alternative to a Student Disciplinary Panel Hearing; the introduction of new sanctions at the outcome of a disciplinary process; and the Proctors’ role in determining plagiarism cases where the outcome cannot be failure of the entire degree or expulsion, replacing the role of the Academic Conduct Panel. Please do familiarise yourself with the content of the new booklet, and the aforementioned sections.
