Van Mildert College Middle Common Room (MCR) Membership

Wednesday, 25 September 2019 to Sunday, 6 October 2019


The Middle Common Room at Van Mildert College is a lively community of over 200 postgraduate students. The common room is run by a committee of its members, for its members, who organise various events and trips specifically tailored to postgraduate students. While all activities have a social and community focus, many of them also have a wider academic or research aspect to them. Through your membership you can also stand and vote in elections and play an active role in student governance within the College. In addition, postgraduates who are members of the MCR automatically become members of our undergraduate body, the Junior Common Room (JCR). The JCR provides additional services and a host of other benefits including a wide range of clubs, committese and societies alongside running things like the gym on the College’s behalf. The membership fee of £35 per year means that you are able to fully particpate in the life of the MCR and make the most of your time in Durham. The membership fee goes towards subsidising the running of the MCR and its activities. Not opting into the charge means that you will not be entitled to take part in these activities or will be subject to an additional charge per event where non-members are invited.

Refund Policy

If a student decides they no-longer wish to participate in the student life of Van Mildert College (MCR membership), a refund can be applied for up until the end of the first week of term (Sunday 13th October). Students who join the MCR after this point, having experienced college life, will not be able to apply for a refund.
