St Cuthbert's Society

Senior Common Room

The Senior Common Room is made up of academic and academic related-staff of the University, Fellows, College Mentors, members of the local community and alumni.

Mark Miller, SCR President

Welcome to the web pages of the Senior Common Room at St Cuthbert's Society.

Please explore these pages to find out about the range of activities organised by the SCR, which include talks, formal and informal dinners, and group excursions. Many of our activities are also open to undergraduate and graduate students, since one of the SCR's aims is to promote interactions between all members of the Society.

Mark Miller, SCR President

The Senior Common Room, like the Junior Common Room, supports the work of the Senior Management Team (Principal, Vice Principal and Assistant Principal) in order to promote the college community. The programme of SCR events is organised by the SCR Committee, which also maintains the facilities in the common room itself.

Members of the SCR have access to the common room, dining facilities, bar and gardens at the Society's premises on South Bailey. Membership is free for the first year, and a modest subscription fee is charged annually thereafter. If you are interested in becoming a member, please contact the SCR President at
