Freshers Information 2021


Congratulations on being admitted to Christ Church and the University of Oxford! We are glad that you are going to be joining us and are very much looking forward to welcoming you in the autumn. Christ Church is home to a vibrant and diverse community of students and staff, and is one of the most beautiful of the Oxford colleges, between Oxford’s busy town centre and the peaceful, green spaces of Christ Church Meadow. We hope that you will enjoy being part of our College.

There are a number of formalities to complete before your arrival, and you will find everything that you need to do outlined in these pages. You will need to read each page carefully, as each contains important information.

You will be aware that you are joining Christ Church during a very unusual time, and that some elements of life here may have to be done differently in the coming months. Our aim is to ensure that you enjoy as normal a University experience as possible and we hope that you will join us in making this happen. We ask that you read all information and updates very carefully over the coming weeks, and adhere to any guidance which may need to be put in place to keep our members, and their families, safe and well.

Further information will be added to these pages in the coming weeks, so please be alert to email updates from the Academic Office, and check this page regularly. 

Please review the University's webpages for new students:, including a page for new international students:, and the University’s Covid webpages:

We also recommend that new students refer to the University’s new support service, Oxford Transition Support: This includes materials on academic skills, welfare and wellbeing, and student life.
