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.
