Important update on returning to College

Wolfson College

In the light of the growing number of COVID-19 cases across most parts of the UK, the government now expects the majority of undergraduate and taught postgraduate students not to return before 25th January. Until then, teaching will be delivered online.

UPDATE: This article has been superseded by the announcement by the Prime Minister of a new national lockdown on 4 January 2021. Students and staff can find the latest information on our COVID-19 resource page, and on the University's website.  

Wolfson students have all been sent a message from the Vice Chancellor about the new government guidelines concerning the start of next term, and that statement can be found online.

Wolfson is therefore asking all students to delay their arrival back in Cambridge, if they can. There are many exceptions, and students doing different courses will have different suggested arrival times, so it is essential that you read the University statement carefully.

We will communicate with students in the week beginning Monday 4th January with instructions on how to contact us to let us know individual travel plans.  

Students should keep mind that, if you are coming from overseas, you will need to quarantine for 10 days (a legal obligation from most countries) and the College will expect all newly-arriving students to practice rigorous social distancing until they have had a COVID-19 test. You can find out more on our Travel Quarantine page. 

Testing will be available again the week beginning 11th January. You can find out more information about testing on our dedicated COVID-19 page. 

We ask all students that, unless they need urgent assistance, to wait to hear from us before getting in touch.
