This page has been set up to signpost people to the most relevant information about the University and College response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.
The College is continually monitoring latest Public Health England, government and University advice about the virus. Please be assured that our focus is on managing this situation in the best way possible, keeping the interests, health and wellbeing of our members firmly in the forefront of our minds.
Regular updates about what this means for Caius students, fellows and staff are being sent out by email, and are being posted to The Venn. We ask that Caius members please continue to keep updated with these messages.
As of midday on Wednesday 18 March the University has activated the Red Phase of its response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Regular updates about what this means for Caius students, fellows and staff are being sent out by email, and are being posted to The Venn. We ask that Caius members please continue to keep updated with these messages.
Many questions about what this means for the next term and academic year from a University perspective naturally remain unanswered at this stage but the University will be providing updates as and when the situation evolves. University statements and further advice can be found at www.cam.ac.uk/coronavirus.
Our highest priority for the Caius community is the welfare of students, fellows and staff. We ask everyone to follow the NHS advice regarding good hygiene practices. To protect our community on site, please think carefully about visiting the College and only do so if you have none of the risk factors listed by Public Health England.
Please continue to look after yourselves, your loved ones and each other.
A message on teaching next year for our offer holders
You may have seen stories in the media about Cambridge's planning for teaching and learning in the next academic year and you will have been contacted by the University regarding this.
At Caius, we have already started planning hard for what living, catering, socialising and teaching will look like when you arrive and we are consulting with current students to ensure that, even in the midst of physical distancing, the College will deliver as much of the rich student experience that makes this such a special place as possible, albeit sometimes in new ways.
Lectures may be online but College will remain at the centre of your educational experience through the supervision system and the tutorial system of pastoral support. These will continue in person as much as possible.
There remains a great deal of uncertainty ahead but we remain committed to ensuring that you are informed of plans as they develop and that Caius will be a place you may be proud to call home next year. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Admissions Office and we will endeavour to answer them where at all possible.
More information in the form of frequently asked questions for offer holders is available on the University’s website.
