Welcome to the Clare College Porters' Department
This is intended to be a constantly updated resource where you can find details of Porters' Lodge services, contact information, and some photographs that will help you recognise us.
Clare College has three Porters' Lodges: at Old Court, Memorial Court and The Colony. The Memorial Court lodge also covers Ashby, Thirkill and Lerner Courts. Each of these lodges provides similar services and each lodge provides 24 hour cover, 365 days per year.
The Porters work three rotating shifts (7am to 3pm, 3pm to 11pm and 11pm to 7am). If you require any further information on our security arrangements please email the Head Porter.
If you require assistance at any time, please call into one of the lodges, email, or phone us on the numbers listed below.
