Christ Church college nurse Mrs Jan Undery was killed in a car crash at 7.40am on Wednesday.
Undery was driving a silver toyota when it crashed at a junction with a red pick-up truck. She was declared dead at the scene, whilst the two occupants of the red car are now in John Radcliffe Hospital with minor injuries.
The college e-mail sent to students read, “Those of you who had personal contact with Jan may feel particular grief at this news. We hope that as a community we can be supportive of each other at this time.” Students were also advised to go to Pembroke if in need of a nurse.
