Welcome to the Proctors' Office

Proctors homepage We are among the most ancient officers of the University. We are nominated by the Colleges and serve for one year, assisted by the Deputy Proctors and two Pro-Proctors.

Our main role is to act as formal representatives of the University's governing body, the Regent House. We oversee degree ceremonies, ensure that examinations are properly conducted, oversee discipline and public order and defend freedom of speech within the University.

We are ex-officio members of the Board of Scrutiny and of various other bodies. We are available to all members of the University for consultation on any topic. The Junior Proctor is the first port of call for enquiries relating University Societies.

The Special Pro-Proctor for Motor Vehicles licenses vehicles for undergraduates.
