St Hugh’s College formally welcomed new students joining the University with their matriculation ceremony on 15th October.

New students joining the University are invited to formally take up their place with the College and the University of Oxford with a ceremonial service taking place at the Sheldonian Theatre. The ceremony, known as “Matriculation” confers membership of the University of Oxford on those students who are enrolled at the University and following a degree-level course.

On the morning of Saturday 15th October, St Hugh’s College matriculated 289 new students. Students congregate in Mordan Hall, with a welcome speech given by the presiding Dean of Degrees, who this year was Professor Tim Rood. The Dean of Degrees then leads the matriculands, dressed in their full sub fusc, down to Broad Street and the Sheldonian Theatre for the formal ceremony, conducted by the Vice Chancellor, Professor Louise Richardson.

Photographs of matriculation were taken by Mlle Mathilde Merouani, St Hugh’s Leatrice in French, and are available to view on the College’s Flickr account.
