Introduction of a new COVID-19 Student Responsibility Agreement

Silver group has agreed the introduction of a COVID-19 Student Responsibility Agreement, to be signed by all students studying here in the 2020-21 academic year. This follows extensive consultations with the Conference of Colleges, relevant University groups including Oxford SU, and after liaison with Oxford Brookes. The purpose of the Agreement is to secure students’ agreement to protect themselves and each other within the University, the colleges and the wider Oxford community. It supplements students’ existing responsibilities under University and college policies.

The agreement is now available online. Colleges (for matriculated students) and Departments (for non-matriculated students) have been asked to assist with obtaining signatures and reporting progress, to ensure the successful introduction of the agreement.
