The College Lodge

Welcome to The College Lodge

The College Lodge is located immediately on the left of the main entrance through the wrought iron gates. The Lodge is manned by a team of Porters 24 hours a day who are responsible for security around the College . They are the first point of contact for all people visiting college, signing in all visitors, alumni and contractors.

They also welcome new students when they arrive, ensuring they have their room keys and University card, as well as information about life at St Hugh’s. The Porters are there to help students 24/7, be it for practical information or pastoral care. The Lodge is part of the Safe Haven scheme for all students across the whole University which provides a line of communication between College Porters in Oxford.

As well as the above responsibilities, the Porters are the College’s first responders to fire alarms and any first aid situations. They also take post and deliveries for the College and sort it into student and staff pigeon holes.

The College Lodge telephone number is:  01865 274 900
