Pre-Dinner Drinks

Drinks are usually available in the SCR on Tuesday
evenings from 6.30pm to 7.00pm.         These are not
complementary and must be signed for, so that battels can

SCR members. If you wish to use the room and take
advantage of the daily newspapers and hot drinks
facilities, please ask the porter to unlock it for you. Hot
drinks should be signed for in the book provided. Please
remember to close all windows, switch off lights and drop

Annual Subscriptions

the existing SCR membership. Where appropriate a CV is

                  Purpose of the SCR

The function of the SCR is to enhance the student
experience, promote the College, foster good relationships
with benefactors and provide a forum for academic
interactions. We aim to achieve this through a wide range
of activities organised by the SCR Committee. These
include joint JCR, MCR and SCR events, inviting guests
and after dinner speakers to formal dining, and promoting
the College to academic colleagues to encourage
engagement in the College community.
