Update and arrangements for Trinity Term 2021
As of 14 June:
Following Monday’s announcement please continue to follow current guidelines as there are still some restrictions in place.
There will be no changes to teaching or assessment as a result of the announcement.
Cases of COVID-19 are increasing across the country, and you are still required to abide by current local restrictions. Social distancing is still in place in College and you are still required to wear a face covering whilst moving around the College site, and in the Library, unless you are exempt. Please do not gather indoors in groups larger than six.
Get tested twice a week until you leave Oxford.
We also encourage you to get vaccinated when you are eligible. Information about vaccinations can be found on the student health page on the University coronavirus website.
Restrictions on in-person teaching have been lifted from 17 May and all students are permitted to return to Oxford if they wish to, although residency exemptions are still in place.
Advice for international students remains unchanged and you may wish to take advantage of this exemption, particularly if the country from which you are returning is on the UK Government’s ‘red list’. See more here.
If you have not yet returned to Oxford and you would like to for the remainder of term, please speak to Sharon Durno (email@example.com) in the first instance.
If you are on a course which has been given permission to return for in-person teaching, you will need to consider any travel implications, as we know many of you may not be in England. All international arrivals into England must currently quarantine for 10 days, and take PCR COVID-19 tests. Arrivals from ‘red list’ countries must currently quarantine in hotels provided by the Government, and this currently costs £1750. For more details about arriving into England, please see: https://www.gov.uk/uk-border-control. Residency restrictions for Trinity Term have been lifted, and if your course has been granted permission to return, but you are concerned about travelling back to Oxford, please contact Sharon Durno (firstname.lastname@example.org)
For anyone who is now permitted to return to Oxford for in-person teaching who is already in the UK, you are expected to take Lateral Flow Tests (LFT) for COVID-19 before you arrive in Oxford, when you arrive back in Oxford, and then twice a week. More details here. To request information about how to collect and use LFT, please contact Justine Goodenough (email@example.com)
If you have been given permission to return to Oxford and you have a room in College accommodation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org BEFORE you begin to make your return journey. This is really important so that we know who is currently in College accommodation. We do have rooms available in College, so if you require accommodation in Oxford and have been given permission to return, please contact email@example.com
