Accommodation

Policy on indoor and outdoor spaces for September & October 2020

Our main priority as we reopen college and welcome back students is to minimise the risk of transmission of Covid-19: we all have a shared responsibility to adhere to the UK governments guidelines and the college specific policies.
Where possible, we should all seek to minimise the number of interactions that would lead someone to be classed as a ‘close contact’ should we, ourselves, test positive for Covid-19.
For this reason, as households are being formed and college life resumes, we unfortunately need to restrict the number of people in our college spaces. This means we cannot allow visitors/guests to shared accommodation or communal spaces across college. This includes the main college site.

Please read the policy in full.

Student Accommodation

Our accommodation has remained open during the COVID lockdown. Information on household groups has been sent to all students living in our accommodation for the next academic year. Cleaning will continue in all communal areas, with extra time on all touch points and shared facilities. Cleaning of student bedrooms will continue to be suspended.

A weekly accommodation bulletin is being sent to students in our accommodation with up to date information and reminders. Please do look out for this, if you will be living in college accommodation.

All incoming students should also view our COVID-19 information pages; particularly isolation and testing for COVID-19.

Visitors/guests to shared accommodation will be restricted for the months of September/October. More information to follow to residents.

Please contact accommodation@gtc.ox.ac.uk for further information.

IMPORTANT: keep your details up-to-date
Please log in to Student Self Service and check your mobile number in the ‘my contacts information’ section is up-to-date.
It is vital that the University’s COVID-19 Testing Service can contact students as quickly as possible so please ensure we have a current mobile phone number in your Student Record.

Wi-Fi
For Wi-Fi access, you can refer to the IT handout guide found on the Offerholders page. You will only be able to set up your Eduroam once you have registered.

Deposits and Rent
If you have not yet paid your £500 deposit, you can do so by bank transfer or via Western Union.
First month’s rent is due prior to arrival and can be paid using the same payment methods as the deposit. Once here, you will need to set up a UK bank account and set up a monthly direct debit to pay rent which is payable in advance. If you are waiting for scholarship funding and need more time to pay the deposit and/or rent, please contact Green Templeton Accommodation.
