Welcome to Keble

Graduate Freshers

Welcome to our page for Keble’s graduate offer-holders. Here is where you will find the latest information on all things related to your arrival and first few weeks at the College.

We are working within the framework set out by the wider University for the coming academic year. If you need information on your academic conditions, visa applications, language testing, or on the general approach the University and colleges are taking to the coming academic year, please visit the University website first.

We at Keble are preparing for academic year 2021-22 and we’re working hard to make sure that not only as many students as possible can be in residence, but also that the student experience in college is as good as it can be. We’re busy planning how to maintain the different aspects of college life, such as dining, socialising, cultural activities, and sport. Our services and facilities will be operating in line with government guidance and health advice. This is changing as the Covid-19 situation develops, and we will update our information and guidance as quickly as we can.

We look forward to welcoming you for next term.

Our MCR Freshers Committee have been busy planning their own Keble welcome for you. They’ve prepared the MCR Freshers Handbook (pdf), a student’s guide to Keble including advice on what to bring and how to get in touch before you arrive.

Information for International Students

If the country you are travelling from is on the ‘Amber’ list by the time you arrive to the UK, you will be able to quarantine in college. Currently, you will only be able to avoid quarantine on arrival from amber list countries if you have been fully vaccinated while previously in the UK within the past twelve months. Please be aware that this is also subject to exceptions and change. For the latest information, go to the UK Government website.

There are some details of how we will manage the isolation services that we offer that we are still working out. There will be more information and advice on these questions later in the summer which we will post on this page so you are advised to check back regularly. If you have any questions please contact hbac.accommodation@keble.ox.ac.uk.
