Hello,

I am coming to Oxford and will be attending a PPH. Therefore there is no 24/7 staffed lodge.

I have recently been diagnosed with diabetes which I am anxious about. My sugars can be bad overnight which makes me panic especially as the doctors are still adjusting my meds.

Not that I would need support very often but if I was worried or panicky could I go to another college’s lodge? I know this safe lodge scheme is for medical issues. The nearest lodge is 2 mins from my accommodation (a graduate centre) or 3 mins to the nearest college.

Does anyone have any advice?

Perhaps reach out to the Disability Advisory Service and your PPH and see if there's any way they can put a formal arrangement in place with a nearby college before you come up to Oxford? I can't imagine porters turning away a student in an emergency just because they're from a different college (people visit each other's colleges all the time anyway), but it would probably give you more peace of mind to know that there are people who are aware of your condition and can support you in an emergency.
