We're excited for you to be joining the Mildert family. Going to university is a big step, and you'll probably have some questions... Here we answer some common ones.

2020 Freshers' Week starts on the 28th September, when home students arrive.
See the University term dates.
There are also study spaces across College and the University.
The bar has a variety of soft drinks available (and these are sometimes free!).
If you feel pressured or uncomfortable, you can speak to your freps, Talk and Support or College.
Kitchen facilities vary from block to block, but every corridor has at least a fridge, a kettle and a microwave oven.
The wristband for 2020 has been priced at £45.
Contact College if you think you would benefit from an en-suite room. You will be asked to confidentially provide evidence of your need.
We will be offering virtual events for quarantining students and providing welfare support.
Accommodation is organised by College and queries relating to allocation should be directed to College staff, though please spare a thought for them and only contact them if really necessary! Organising accommodation for several hundred freshers, returners and postgraduates isn't simple. Changes have to be made as people drop in and out before arrival day. Ensuring that the College is COVID-secure adds yet another layer of complexity.

2020 is going to be a very different Freshers Week to normal. Nonetheless, your freps are planning an exciting time for you.
Safety is crucial and College staff have been working with us to make sure that our events are COVID-secure.
The Mildert 'Freshtival' will take place during the week with controls. You can also find information in your handbook and on social media.
A lot more planning and consideration has to go into Freshers' Week this year and we have to adapt to changing rules and new guidelines. We'll let you know more when we've confirmed details.
What is allowed will depend on how University and government regulations develop. There won't be any competitive sport in Michaelmas Term, but our sports clubs are run by passionate members and they will do their upmost to ensure that COVID-secure activities take place.
There will also be separate, distanced seating for those unable to make their allocated time.
In order to keep everyone safe, please check your emails for your allocated arrival time.
