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 orginal expiry date of your University card, your card will have been extended to 30 September 2020 and you will have received 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
All alumni can request an Alumni Card which gives you access to various benefits and offers. To request a card and find out more, please take a look at the University Alumni Office website.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic the University has taken the difficult decision to cancel all Degree Ceremonies scheduled to take place until at least March 2021. Students who had booked on to ceremonies taking place in February/March 2021 will be invited to future ceremonies when these become possible. There is no action required on your part, the University will contact you in due course. The timeline of these events is not yet confirmed, and will depend on a range of factors, including the ongoing situation with the pandemic. It is possible that it could take several years for all degrees to be conferred - and you are unlikely to have a choice in the date of your ceremony.
If you wish to have your degree conferred in absentia, please let us know by speaking to Sharon Durno (email@example.com). If you had already arranged to graduate in absentia, no further action is needed on your part.
To make sure that we are able to stay in touch with you, please make sure that you have updated your contact details in the Student Self Service and completed the St Cross new alumni details form.
Please make arrangements to return an library books that you have borrowed. Please call into College and leave your book in a sealed envelope marked for our Librarian, Philippa Taney, with the Porter. Your return will not be processed immediately so please do not be alarmed if it is still showing on your loans. Philippa will process these as soon as she is able. If you are not in Oxford, you can post your books back to College, for the attention of Philippa.
