A message from the Master Baroness Morgan

Fitzwilliam College is all about our community and its members – and that will continue as we all adjust to the unprecedented impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

We want to reassure all members of the Fitz community that we are monitoring daily developments and taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our students, academics and staff. For some, the College is home and we are fully aware of this.

We are working together to implement the many and changing responses to the pandemic.

Our overwhelming priority is the safety and welfare of our students and colleagues, and we are continuing to adapt our measures following guidance from Government, Public Health England and the University of Cambridge.

While social distancing is imperative and some members of our community are in isolation, we can keep the community spirit strong. For example: our students are encouraged to come up with innovative ways to work and play on social media; our academics are engaged in video conferencing; our alumni can keep in touch with the Development office, just for a chat. 

For students, there are Frequently Asked Questions on our website.

Staff also have access to FAQs, via MyFitz.

The University of Cambridge Coronavirus pages have statements from the University, and further links.

On behalf of the College, those ill or self-isolating are foremost in my thoughts, and on behalf of Fitz I wish to thank all those on the frontline of this international public health crisis, especially health workers. 

With best wishes,

Sally
