Ustinov College

Ustinov Senior Common Room


Ustinov College Senior Common Room exists to support the life of the College and to enhance its integration into the wider University and local community. As a unique international postgraduate community, Ustinov College offers a very distinctive SCR experience, with ample opportunities to engage with Ustinov’s postgraduate members.

SCR members are invited to support student scholars the Global Citizenship Programme which encompasses a wide range of academic, cultural and community projects. The Graduate Common Room (GCR) organises sports events and social entertainment such as film nights, a weekly pub quiz and spectacular formal dinners. In addition, the SCR itself organises events ranging from trips to talks and social gatherings – see our events schedule for upcoming events.

Thus, each week throughout the year, Ustinov offers a wide range of seminars, café discussion events, social, sporting and cultural events.

Ustinov SCR members are invited to:

  • Engage in interdisciplinary dialogue with postgraduate students, academics and community members
  • Support student scholars in the Global Citizenship Programme
  • Dine at high table at college formals (subsidised tickets)
  • Trips in the local area
  • Talks, walks & social events
  • Enjoy Keeper’s Cottage, a dedicated social space which can be booked subject to availability
  • Become a Career Mentor

The SCR is run by its own Committee, and there is a small annual membership subscription (£20 individual/£30 couple) which is paid in January each year. You can therefore join the SCR at no cost today.
