Kellogg and COVID-19

Last updated 9 September 2020

The current COVID-19 pandemic sets many challenges for Kellogg and the University of Oxford as a whole. As the most international College of the University we welcome students from across the globe – around 90 countries in fact. So we are acutely aware of the need to balance our traditional warm welcome to you as part of our enthusiastic academic and social community, with the need to take practical measures to, as far as possible, make the College a safe and healthy environment to live, study, and make new friends.

You will receive a copy of the Student Responsibility Agreement, which you will be required to read and sign. This sets out the expectations on you to behave safely and securely during the year ahead, both within College and the wider local community.

So you can enjoy your Oxford experience as much as possible, we’ve put measures in place to ensure we can provide the same quality of advice, guidance, and welfare and practical support we always have, albeit with the need to manage numbers to avoid large gatherings, and to use online tools and services to chat with you and give you the help you need.

In these pages we set out the main differences you will notice as a returning student, and the arrangements in place for freshers who are joining us for the first time.

Please read them carefully and note the information that applies to you in particular. If you have concerns about COVID-19 in the context of life at College, or if you feel you may have symptoms or been in close contact with someone who has had the condition, please email covid@kellogg.ox.ac.uk for guidance.

The University website has extensive information on its response to Coronavirus, which can be found at https://www.ox.ac.uk/coronavirus. The University has also produced these two short videos to advise you of some basic principles of guarding against COVID-19 and general arrangements that will be in place across University sites.
