You can read updates from the University of Cambridge on its coronavirus response pages and more details about the College’s operations here.

Further updates from alumni, staff, students and Fellows can be found in The Eagle 2020. The annual is currently being printed and will be mailed next week, so expect to receive the physical copy or the digital link very soon.
With best wishes,
