College opening hours
Reception is staffed from 08:30 to 19:15, Monday to Friday, apart from some periods during the summer, Easter and Christmas when reception is only staffed until 17:00. During these hours, the front doors will be open and you will be able to access facilities freely, apart from the Library which requires Card access 24/7. Outside of these hours, the front doors will be locked at all times. If you wish to access the College and its facilities outside these hours, you can have your University Card enabled as a door key at Reception or the Facilities Office.
The administrative staff of the College all have offices located at 62 Banbury Road but are mainly working from home due to Covid 19 restrictions. There will be opportunities to consult College staff but this will be by appointment only in Michaelmas Term and may be extended into the rest of the academic year. You will also be able to make appointments to discuss matters via Teams. The administrative staff are committed to providing an excellent service to you despite these constraints which are in place for the safety of all.
Outside of the pandemic, the offices are generally open 09:00 to 17:00, Monday to Friday, though closed at lunchtime (typically 12:45 to 13:45) and there are some exceptions, such as IT support. Major variations to these hours (e.g. closures for staff training or public holidays) will be advertised in advance. When we are unable to give advanced notice (e.g. closure of an office due to staff illness) we will provide as much information about alternative contact as possible.
The Hub front door (situated on the West Elevation facing the Banbury Road) is open 08:00 to 17:00, Monday to Friday, and 08:00 to 16:00, Saturday and Sunday. Outside these times access is controlled by University Card use. Card access will need to be enabled to College members only, which can be done at Reception.
