2020 useful contacts for new undergraduates

Please see below for a list of useful contacts.

Office arrangements in Michaelmas Term 2020 are likely to be different to normal. All offices will be open, but with smaller numbers of staff physically in the office and protective screens in operation.

Academic Office and Student Welfare

The Academic Office is in House 5 on the ground floor, off Green Hall. We can help with matters such as lost Bod Cards, exam and collection queries, and other general admin questions.

The Academic Office is open on weekdays, 09:00-12:00 and 14:00-16:00, and can also be contacted at academic.office@some.ox.ac.uk

Please note that there will be a reduced staff presence in House 5 during Michaelmas Term 2020, and we would prefer if queries could be raised initially by email. The Academic Office will be staffed by one member of staff only and protective screens will be in place across the doorway. We may operate a booking system for in-person queries – further information will be released in due course. You can also make appointments to speak to specific members of staff via video or phone calls through the email above.

Somerville also has a dedicated Welfare Support and Policy Officer in House 4 next door to the Academic Office. If she is not available, you can talk to the Senior Tutor, the Undergraduate Officer or the College Nurse. A booking system will be in operation for the Welfare Officer.
