In the case of a national 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 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.

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.
