The Academic Office is responsible for organising and managing the academic life of Somerville’s students, from undergraduate admissions through to graduation ceremonies, alongside our colleagues working in access and outreach, and student funding.

In the first instance, please contact with your enquiries. You can also call in to House 5 between 9am-12pm and 2-5pm Monday to Friday, or leave forms for stamping and signing in the letterbox when the office is closed.
