Student Common Rooms
At Hertford we believe that a strong, supportive student community is really important for your academic success and personal wellbeing.
As a new student, you’ll automatically become a member of a Student Common Room – a bit like Students’ Unions at other universities – when you start your studies. Undergraduates are part of the Junior Common Room (JCR), while graduate students belong to the Middle Common Room (MCR). We have a Senior Common Room (SCR) for our tutors and lecturers too, so no one’s left out. There’s no membership charge to be part of these associations, they just help to organise the college community and put you in touch with your fellow students. In all cases, the phrase ‘Common Room’ refers to both the physical room and the body of students which belong to it.
