What is the Junior Common Room?
The Junior Common Room (JCR) is the student body of St. Cuthbert's Society. The JCR President is responsible for the running of the JCR with the support of the JCR Executive, all of whom are elected by the students. It is a registered charity and a recognised JCR within the University. For more details about the relationship between the college and the JCR, please see the College Council page
We have over 1200 JCR members. Unlike the majority of colleges, both undergraduates and postgraduates form our JCR. Every member is welcome to participate in all of our activities and run for election to any position on the JCR Exec. This is a great opportunity to take on an important leadership role and develop impressive skills.
The JCR supports a wide variety of sports teams and societies, which include arts, music and drama. Every team and society is eligible to receive funding, which is allocated as per our financial guidelines and approved at a JCR general meeting. The JCR also maintains our gyms, computer rooms, laundrys, PA / disco equipment, amongst other things.
