The Housekeeping and Maintenance team are here to maintain the college facilities and help our members with any housekeeping and maintenance enquiry.
For help with doors, cookers, lights, plumbing, etc., please use the property maintenance request web form.
For help with housekeeping issues, including furniture, soft furnishings, recycling etc, please use the housekeeping request web form.
Housekeeping also has a limited number of spare single mattresses which may be borrowed for a maximum of four nights, although availability cannot be guaranteed.
In the case of a genuine emergency (eg a leaking pipe) please contact the lodge (tel: 274100) who will assist you.
Members of college should not give instructions directly to members of the maintenance team - all requests should be reported through the online system, and will be prioritised. Staff have access to all accommodation and common rooms and carry appropriate college identity cards. Your attendance is not necessary while repairs are carried out.

This lecture will explore how publishers became responsible for promoting authors through portraiture in the mid-Victorian period. In particular it will focus on Edward Moxon and his role in expanding the readership of both William Wordsworth and Alfred Tennyson. While portraits of Wordsworth were relatively scarce, Tennyson was surrounded by sculptors, painters and photographers, which led to a new and disturbing experience of literary celebrity that had a major impact on his career.
