Welcome to Darwin
Welcome to Darwin! We’re delighted that you will be joining our College community. This page aims to answer your questions, as a new student.
When you arrive at Darwin, come first to the Porters’ Lodge, at our main entrance on Silver Street.
The Porters will be able to help you with directions, and give you all the information you need. If you’re staying in College accommodation, you’ll be given your keys, bedding and a welcome pack before you’re shown to your room.
The Welcome Desk
A welcome desk will be open every weekday from 4th September- 3rd October in the Old Library.
Here you will be able to pay your fees, pay for your accommodation, get IT assistance, have your ID and visa checked, and have any questions answered.
Members of the Darwin College Students Association (DCSA) will also be on hand to tell you about Freshers events, sports and societies – and show you to the Bar!
