At St Hilda's College, there are dedicated facilities for both undergraduate and graduate students, who are members of the JCR and MCR respectively.

Each student is an important member of our community. All are welcome at our events and are encouraged to keep up to date with our College news.

The Junior Common Room (JCR) is both a place that has a bar, lounge area with a television and selection of newspapers, and a buttery, or snack bar; and a term for all the undergraduate in College. The JCR committee represents the views and interests of undergraduates to the officers and decision-making bodies of the College, promotes the welfare of its members, and organizes social activities. Find out more on the JCR website, the JCR Facebook page or in Part A.2 of the Student Handbook. Members of the JCR can also contact committee members by email:

Our graduate students are also welcome to use the JCR bar and lounge area. They are automatically members of the Middle Common Room (MCR), a term for both the graduate student body and the spacious meeting room on the main College site that is for their sole use. This is a pleasant environment for informal gatherings and social activities. The MCR is run by a committee of graduates elected every year, which represents their interests in practical ways.  The committee organises a very active and varied social program of events in College, from brunches to film screenings. In addition to Dining Hall access through the year, MCR members are invited to a welcoming dinner with their College advisers in their 1st year. They also have the opportunity each year to attend a College dinner, to which they may invite their thesis supervisor or another academic guest. They can meet and mingle with the Fellows over refreshments at the MCR research event that is held each term. The MCR ensures that all graduates who want to pursue sport or other leisure activities at whatever level are able to enjoy the facilities they need. Find out more on the MCR Facebook page, or in Part A of the Student Handbook.

Please note that the JCR website will not necessarily represent the official views of the College.
