    Stay well this winter: your actions matter

    Here are a few steps you can take to minimise risks: 
    •    Wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you come into contact with people you do not normally meet
    •    Let fresh air in indoors: keeping windows and doors open increases ventilation and significantly reduces the spread of COVID-19. Please keep them open, particularly in areas which are poorly ventilated

    Student Vaccination Survey results announced

    Nearly 50% of students responded to the survey, which closed on Friday 5 November, with 98% reporting that they were vaccinated, (95% fully and 3% partially). There were virtually no differences in vaccination rates between different colleges and departments. Thank you to everyone who completed the survey. As previously communicated, it will not be possible for your college or department to know your vaccination status as a result of taking part.

    Take action to minimise COVID-19 risks

    We all have a responsibility for minimising the risks of COVID-19 while living, studying and working around the University. We're reminding all students to continue to be considerate to everyone in our Oxford community and follow the health advice; reducing the risk of infection and helping to ensure everyone can take part in University life.

    Please remember to:

    Student Spotlight: Improving inclusivity in sport

    The journey so far

    My name is Georgie Milner Day (she/her), and I am a third year Human Sciences student at St Hugh’s College. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in Oxford so far and I am looking forward to what will hopefully be a less disrupted final year.

    Sport has always been an important part of my life. Indeed, when I was less than six-months-old my mum enrolled us in the parent and baby swimming class, and I have not stopped swimming since.

    Complete the COVID-19 vaccination survey

    This very short form will ask you to confirm your COVID-19 vaccination status. 

    If you haven't completed it yet, there's still time to do so before it closes on Friday 5 November. The survey is voluntary, and it will not be possible for your department or college to know your vaccination status through completing it.

    Supporting you through times of stress

    There can be many causes of stress when you're a student, from your studies, health, money or pressure to succeed. Having a sensible, well thought-through routine of enough sleep, eating balanced meals and exercising can help you to get the most out of your time at Oxford. 

    There are a range of welfare and wellbeing related resources available to you:

    What inspired you to set up the magazine?

    The inspiration to set up Onyx came from being surrounded by the talented work of young Black writers, poets and artists. I set up the magazine because I hadn’t seen a creative literary publication solely dedicated to uplifting Black creatives and I saw the importance of unearthing these voices.

    Have your say on race equality at Oxford

    The Race Equality Task Force is now consulting on a set of proposed measures for tackling racial equity across the University.

    Launched in November 2020 and reporting to Council, the Task Force aims to build on the wider range of existing activities that already take place across the collegiate University, accelerating change across Oxford.
