Information for undergraduate and postgraduate students living in College Accommodation for 2020/2021 

Girton College Households

The Main College site is divided into 36 separate households, including two in Girton Gate and three in the Grange.  These Households are shown on the Household plans. Some Households can only be accessed via external routes – please do not take internal shortcuts through Households.

Please follow the College guidance on the occupation of these households.  Additionally please note that it is not permitted to go through one Household to gain access to another Household or other part of College.

In Swirles Court each floor within a block is a household. 

Girton Household Rules

Below are some useful quick reference guides for you and your household to follow.

Girton College Arrangements for Quarantine and Self-Isolating in College Accommodation

Local or second lockdown Guidance

In the case of a second or local lockdown, the University and the Colleges will, as ever, be guided by the advice of PHE/National Institute for Health Protection and the country’s legislation. At Girton, in the event of a second wave or localised spike we will do everything we can to support students to stay in residence and continue their studies providing that it is safe, within the law and complies with government guidelines.

As always Tutors, College Nurses and the Accommodation Officer will be available to give advice in such a situation.

The University is continually monitoring the latest Public Health England and Government advice about the virus. You can find useful information on their website here.


It is more important than ever that we look after ourselves and others.
