The Student Office works closely with the Senior Tutor, Tutors and Members of the College to support students throughout their time at Lucy Cavendish.

It is there to ensure students have information about funding opportunities, are entered for their exams, meet the obligations of their student visa, keep the necessary number of terms, and have proof of their student status should they need it. We arrange for you to matriculate as a member of the College and University promptly after your arrival in Cambridge, and we organise your graduation celebration when you finish your degree.  

Our team has a wealth of knowledge and experience and can offer help and advice about a wide range of College and University matters.  

The Senior Tutor

The Senior Tutor has overall responsibility for the academic progress, health and welfare of all students in the College. They work with many others, both within the College and the University, for the benefit of our students and keep them informed of events and deadlines in College, the University and the city by use of frequent email messages.

The Senior Tutor is Dr Jane Greatorex and you can contact her on

When you join us you will be allocated a Tutor whose role is to support you for the duration of your course. Tutors can offer advice, act as liaison between students or can sometimes just listen to concerns. Tutors also have detailed knowledge of support agencies in Cambridge and of grants and bursaries available through College and the University. You should let your Tutor know immediately in the event of illness or accidents, and if necessary your Tutor will liaise with Directors of Studies, or supervisors.  Tutors will also provide references (although you should ask permission before giving their names).
