It is more important than ever that we look after ourselves and others. By acting responsibly in the face of this pandemic we stand the greatest chance of minimising the risk of infection and carrying on with our work, study and the things we enjoy. The University and Colleges have put together a clear set of measures, which have been tested and refined in consultation with over 300 students and staff, designed to keep everyone in our community as safe as possible.

In order to manage potential outbreaks of COVID-19 and keep everyone in the community as safe as possible, we have worked in collaboration with local public health teams to develop the University of Cambridge Outbreak Response Plan.

Lent term: Update 7 January 2021

The University and Colleges remain open, and will continue to engage in research, learning and education.

After considerable reflection, we have taken the difficult decision to move all teaching and learning for undergraduate and postgraduate taught students online for the entirety of the Lent term. Undergraduate and postgraduate taught students should remain where they are currently staying. Postgraduate research students who are able to work from their out-of-term address should do so. Postgraduate research students who consider Cambridge to be their primary place of residence should review the information at the following link.

For exceptions, and for more information, see the message issued by the Vice-Chancellor on 6 January 2021.
