Van Mildert College Junior Common Room (JCR) Membership

Wednesday, 25 September 2019 to Sunday, 6 October 2019


The JCR Levy (membership fee) is £155 and this will cover the whole of your undergradute degree.

Our JCR has over 80 societies and sport teams at Mildert, ranging from Mixed Lacrosse to Men’s Football D Team, the Board Games Society to the Rowing Club, so that no matter your ability you can always take part. Even as a complete novice at tennis, hockey, badminton, rugby, rowing, football, netball (and many other sports) you can turn out in the famous yellow and black kit of Team Mildert.

There is also an immense volunteering heritage here: we run six volunteer projects working with local schools, carers, and secure centres. We won the UK and Ireland Green Gown Awards community category for our outreach and volunteering and made it through to the international finals a few months later. As a college of just 1,500 students we competed against entire universities coming from as far away as Tasmania!

We have a bar, shop, and gym, all run by students (you can work on the shop and bar to earn a little extra!) plus our own theatre company, three music rooms with amps, guitars, pianos, drumkit, and recording equipment, a full brass and percussion Big Band, plus an annual musical (last year we performed Mamma Mia 2) college pantomime (written by students about the college!) and Summer Shakespeare, with a host of other plays and performances, not to forget Jam by the Lake, our very own outdoor musical festival, our Charity Fashion Show and our Michaelmas and Summer Balls, all of which are run by you, the students, and have budgets in the tens of thousands.

On top of all that we have a dedicated non judgmental listening and support network called Talk & Support which is run by and for Mildert students.

Everything mentioned here and much more, every sports team, society, volunteering project, bop, ball, silent disco, the bar, the shop, the gym, every musical and each band - it’s all student run. To help pay for all this we have a JCR Levy, currently set at £155, which makes you a member of Van Mildert College JCR and gives you access to all of the above. Whilst JCR membership is optional we strongly encourage all students to join to make the most of their time at Durham and become part of our unique, diverse, thriving community of students from across the world.
