The College has many sources of support to help our students. For more information please see our dedicated welfare page.
We are your JCR Welfare Reps: Madeleine (Women and Trans Identity Rep), Ollie (Male and Minority Gender Officer), and Connor (Freshers Welfare Rep).
Our role is simple: to make sure you feel supported at St Hugh’s throughout your time in Oxford. We act as a point of contact for all students that may want to: find support; talk through and issue; or just grab a brew. We also sit on various college committees, striving to make your voice heard and hold college accountable for student wellbeing.
For now, welfare events look a little different. But, we have a lot of digital events lined up to help keep you smiling through lockdown (including film, quiz, and games nights). The welfare team is committed to your mental health and wellbeing. Hopefully we will be back to welfare teas soon, but keep your eyes on that mailbox/pidge for now!
To all incoming freshers, we are so excited to meet you. If you have any questions please do contact any welfare rep or our wonderful Peer Support team.
Madeline, Ollie, and Connor
I am Ricardo, a second-year Graduate-Entry Medic, and one of the Welfare reps for St. Hugh’s MCR. You can catch me in one of the MCR’s regular welfare events, such as brunch or yoga, reach me by email and Facebook, or just strike up a conversation if you see me on campus or in town. I am available to offer support, guidance or resources to any student in need, and always keen to meet new faces! If you have any questions you are more than welcome to contact me or our peer support team.
I’m Kat, a third-year DPhil in History and one of the two MCR welfare reps. I’m always up for a chat if you’re looking for someone to talk to – reach out either by e-mail or via Facebook, or feel free to simply say hi around St Hugh’s! I live in college and am generally around most of the time. I’m also part of the peer support network for St Hugh’s, and can offer an open ear and open mind if you’d like to get something off your chest. The welfare team hosts regular weekly events, but we can also be first points of contact for broader welfare needs, and can help you navigate the support networks at college, the university, or in Oxford more broadly. I’m looking forward to a new term at St Hugh’s and hope you are too!
