Housekeeping & Maintenance
The Housekeeping and Maintenance teams 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. By making the request yourself, you are giving maintenance permission to enter your accommodation in your absence.
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: 01865 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.

Due to the tireless work of musicologists such as Anna Beer, a rich legacy of music by women has been, and continues to be, unearthed. The tide is, however, beginning to turn and we are hearing more female composers. But how can we, indeed how should we, write these composers' lives? In the first Weinrebe Lecture of 2019, Anna will share her insights into gender, creativity and life-writing.Networking23 - 23Jan JanDigital Research Cluster LunchWednesday 23 January - 12:30pm to 1:30pm
