Hertford has an “in house” peer-support team. These students are trained in active listening skills and have regular supervision. They provide a confidential service to Hertford students. They can provide information about where to get further help. The list of the current peer supporters is available here.
The MCR also has a welfare officer that you can contact if you’re looking for help.

  • Food intolerance:

Students with food intolerances of any sort should contact the college nurse so that she can liaise with the kitchen. If you have a food allergy please check the illustrated allergen sheet that appears directly above the weekly menu poster outside the Hall server and next to the weekly menu in Warnock. This sheet is filled out before each meal by the kitchen staff and indicates which potential allergens are in each menu item. Please ask the servery staff if you have any questions regarding allergen content.
If you have an “Epipen” auto injector , please check that it is in date and that you carry it with you at all times.
