The Blue Book

Christ Church's Information and Regulations for Junior Members - otherwise known as ‘The Blue Book’.

This is a very important source of information for our Junior Members - many questions relating to college life, both academic and non-academic aspects, are answered here, so please take the time to read through it. It includes information on the structure of the College, academic provision, disciplinary procedures, college facilities, including meals and accommodation, and welfare arrangements.
