JCR Meetings

UCLogo-FullColourJCR Meetings are when we come together as a college twice a term to discuss important college and university issues, elect Non-executive and College Servant positions listed in the standing orders, and which also ensure that the Executive Committee and these officers are running the college to the best possible degree. At JCR Meetings, any issue that is important to any member of the JCR can be put forward to the Executive Committee.

For all their importance, the meetings are good fun and well attended! We provide free pizza and soft drinks, and there is always a raffle for a £10 Undercroft bar tab. Perhaps the best parts are the nominations of the highly esteemed positions known as College Servants, which are perhaps some of the least serious and most illustrious JCR positions.

The JCR meetings for the 2016/17 academic year shall take place on:

JCR 1 9th October 2016

JCR 2 28th November 2016

JCR 3 Jan 23rd 2017
