As a student at Hughes Hall you are allocated a college tutor, who is concerned with your welfare and progress throughout your course.
You may consult your tutor over any matter concerning your studies, or in any personal, disciplinary or financial matter on which you need advice or help. Tutors are experienced academics or others who know the university well, and can help you navigate through the regulations and pressures of university life. You are likely to ask your tutor for references and letters of support during and after your time in Cambridge, since they take a particular interest in your personal and scholarly development and future.
Your tutors can act as intermediary for you in relation to the college or the university: e.g. regarding certification of residence, examination arrangements, and matters concerning good conduct (discipline) for which the college is held answerable by the university. Your tutor’s approval is required for various applications, e.g. Travel and Conference Grants, Changing Subject, Student Support Grants and many other student loans, grants and scholarships. Your tutor will also note your financial standing with college, and may remind you to settle your bills with college if needed. All tutors are able to help in a wide range of areas. But they may also direct you to specialist help in the university, or in the college as noted below.
You should email your tutor if you want to see them. Even if you have already made a verbal arrangement, email to confirm it. Meetings will take place with appropriate social distancing arrangements in place; usually using an online meeting platform, although meetings in college can be arranged if necessary. Tutors will agree to see you as soon as mutually convenient, though they may be less available outside of full terms. If you are unable to keep the appointment, email to inform them as soon as possible. If you don’t remember your tutor’s name, email the Tutorial Office to ask.
