As many of you will know, we are expecting the UK Government to give an update on Monday (22 Feb), to outline a roadmap out of this current lockdown and the easing of restrictions. Following this announcement, we expect that many of you will have questions about what these changes will mean for you. The University and the College will be working through the updated guidance and advice once this is made available, but this could take a number of days. We may not be able to release updated guidance until later next week. If possible, please refrain from asking members of staff questions in relation to Monday’s announcement, until you have received this update. As advised in last week’s bulletin, if you expect to make a request for a rent rebate as you have been unable to return to your College accommodation this term, please complete this form.
St Cross Library Latest News
The Library continues to remain open for study and spaces MUST be booked by 22:00 the day prior to your visit. Please be sure to supply us with your full name at the time of booking and only a book a space if you intend to use it as demand for desks is high.
It is essential to wear a face covering at all times unless medically exempt and to clean your desk before leaving with the cleaning materials provided. Food, non-silent study and congregating are not permitted. Sadly, a number of students have not been following these rules and if this continues we will take action, which may result in closing the Library.
Next week Bodleian iSkills are running a useful workshop on finding research materials, for more information and to book a space please take a look at what's on offer.
