Our Coronavirus Guidance

So that we can ensure that all Members of the Churchill College community stay healthy and safe, things will look a little different when you next come to College. But you can find everything you need to know on our new Coronavirus Guidance page  From the latest research from the University to what you should do if you have symptoms, and from the provision of College services to minimising the risk of transmission, you'll find all the answers to your questions here.

Diary of Events for Postgraduate Freshers

Please note, this diary of events was for Michaelmas Term 2020. An updated version for Michaelmas 2021 will be released in due course. 


This will be done online this year. Further information to be sent out to you when the University provides us with more details.

Matriculation photo

Saturday 10th October

There will be a photographer taking a photo of all new 2020 postgrads for a group photo.  Even if you are not interested in having the photo yourself, please do come along, as it is important for College records!

Due to the pandemic, the photographer will take photos of individuals and then work his magic by putting them all together into a group photo!

To make it easier to socially distance, we are suggesting time slots organised by family/surname. Please see below:

A - G = 3 pm

H – M = 3: 15 pm

N - R = 3:30 pm

S – Z = 3:45 pm

Please come along to the Barbara Hepworth Statue (near the Buttery entrance) at the appropriate time. Please bring a face covering to make queuing even safer.
