College Information & Policies

Last updated 30 June 2020

The Saugman Common Room will re-open to all current St Cross College students, not just main site residents. Please use this space respectfully, and follow the one-way- system that is now in place in College. Hand sanitizing stations are available, but the coffee machine will not be in use for the foreseeable future. This space is only open to St Cross students, and no guests are allowed into College.

Most staff members are now working from home, but all staff are contactable by email; full contact details are available here. As a quick guide, the following staff members can be contacted to help current students with specific enquiries. If you are a prospective student, please see the University Guidance for applicants. St Cross Offer Holders will receive regular information from our Academic Office.

Stay in Touch

The Master and other members of staff will send out regular updates regarding the COVID-19 situation to all College members.  We also invite you to follow the College on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for additional updates.

The College has set up nine geographically based WhatsApp groups to help College members stay connected, and more may be developed soon. We currently have groups for London, the UK (excluding London), USA West Coast, USA Midwest, USA South, USA North East, Singapore, and Hong Kong, and an additional group for current students living in Oxford. If you’d like to join one of these groups, send a WhatsApp message to +44 7964 920916 with your name and the group you’d like to join.
