Oxford Term Dates
Electronic format files with the Oxford Term Dates. These have a series of one-week long events, called, for example, "5th Week, Trinity Term".
- iCal format (.ics) (some applications prefer the file ending .icl but it's the same file in either case)
- CSV for import into old versions of Outlook
- Users of the University Nexus Exchange system can search for "Wolfson Term Dates Calendar" in the address book (username wolfdate) and view that user's calendar alongside their own
These files are provided on an "as is" basis by the IT Team at Wolfson College to whom any queries should be addressed in the first instance. The script that generates them is available on request. It makes extensive use of the Perl module Oxford::Calendar which does all the hard work - its maintainers deserve many thanks! For contact details, please see the IT Support pages of this website.
We hope these files prove useful throughout the University, but please note that they are maintained only to the extent that they are useful for the College's requirements. Further, these files are an unofficial source of the term dates, and while every effort has been made to ensure their accuracy no liability is accepted for any inconvenience or loss arising from their use. By regulation, term dates are published in the University Gazette; they are also available on the University's website.
