New Students Signpost

Admissions Announcements:

We are aware that the current global situation is a cause of concern for many applicants. The uncertainty we face is a challenge for students, teachers, and administrators in universities around the world, and at Hughes Hall we are working hard to prepare and adapt for the new academic year in October together with all our colleagues across the University of Cambridge. We continue to monitor the situation around the world so that we are ready to adapt as necessary. At present, the University is expecting to commence the new academic year as usual, making any necessary adjustments to how we operate that may be required. We are continuing to assess this as the situation develops.

Accommodation Announcements:

The University and Hughes Hall are making adjustments to the provision of teaching and support during the 2020-21 academic year to respond to the health and safety requirements arising from the global situation, and expects all students starting or continuing a full-time course in the new academic year to attend study in Cambridge. The process for allocating Hughes Hall student accommodation for new students arriving in 2020-21 has now opened, when all rooms have been allocated a waiting list system will be operated and the college will provide advice and guidance on securing accommodation from other sources.
