Key information

Student Status & Preparing to Leave the University

All Junior Members are automatically members of Common Room with College student status while they retain student status in the University. This ceases on publication of your examination results, or on being granted Leave to Supplicate for a research degree.

To help prepare you for leaving the University, and to answer your questions about computer and IT access, degree certificates, library access and more, please visit the University pages. Important information about IT access and when this will expire is available here. If you are a PGT student who has been granted an extension for submission of a dissertation, and your deadline now occurs after the original expiry date of your University card, your card will be extended to 30 September 2021 and you will receive an email to confirm this. If you have questions about the expiry date of your University card, and believe it will need extending to support you whilst you complete your studies, please contact academic.secretary@stx.ox.ac.uk 

We cannot extend access to your Oxford email address beyond your University card expiry date and the University currently does not offer an Email for Life. More details about email addresses for alumni can be found on the University Alumni website. 

Alumni Cards

All alumni can request a My Oxford Card which gives you access to various benefits and offers. To request a card please use the My Oxford Card platform. From your account at My Oxford Online, you can get also exclusive content from the University, update your contact details, and manage your communication preferences. 

Degree ceremonies

If you are waiting for a ceremony, you don’t have to take any action at this stage. You will be invited to a ceremony as soon as possible, and the Degree Conferrals Office will keep you updated. More information will follow in the near future.

If you would prefer not to wait for a ceremony, you still have the option to have your degree conferred in absentia. Please contact Sasha Travers (academic.secretary@stx.ox.ac.uk) if you would like to do this.

You can also order a degree confirmation letter in advance of your ceremony at no additional charge from Degree Conferrals: https://www.oxforduniversitystores.co.uk/product-catalogue/degree-conferrals/degree-confirmation-letters.

Library Services

Please make arrangements to return any library books you have borrowed from the College Library. You can either leave your books in the returns cupboard in the College foyer or at the Porters’ Lodge marked for the attention of our Librarian, Philippa Taney.

If you are not in Oxford, you can post your books back to College, for the attention of Philippa.

If you are having difficulties getting your books back to us, please contact us at: librarian@stx.ox.ac.uk.
