Societies and social

Our College is big enough that you'll find lots of people to share your interests, but small enough that you'll聽get to know most other students.

People often comment on the strong聽community feeling at 汤头条原创, helped by the fact almost all our students live very聽close to the College site. We're right in the centre of town, so it's easy to go and see friends from other Colleges too.

We have very good聽facilities for students, including a brand new common room, caf茅-bar, and a function聽room for parties.聽Our聽annual is very popular and sells out every year.

Societies and groups

Most of our students聽belong to at least one society. They're a great聽way of meeting people who share your interests, and we have a huge variety on offer.聽If none of the existing societies are quite what you're looking for聽you can always set up one of your own.

Some cater for interests and hobbies,聽such as the drama, film, current affairs, and聽photographic societies. Others, like the Science Society, are closely linked to subjects.聽The Coleridge Society hosts interdisciplinary discussions across literature, history, political theory, theology, and philosophy.

There are also academic and professional benefits to some societies, for example the Law Society has links with prestigious firms and figures within the legal world, and the Music Society often hosts well known guest聽musicians聽alongside regular performances.聽

College student unions

Most societies receive some funding from the College's student unions:聽the聽 (JCSU)聽for undergraduates聽and the (MCR) for graduates, although many of their events and activities are open to all students.

The JCSU and MCR also have聽common聽rooms for undergraduates and graduates respectively, providing a social space聽and facilities inclusing wide screen televisions and pool tables.

Students unions organise many different events and initiatives, from Freshers鈥 Week at the start of the year -聽where everyone works hard to welcome new students and help them聽find their feet -聽to celebrations after exams at the end of the year.

Each student union聽elects a president and committee every聽year to represent聽students on College committees, host open meetings, run聽information evenings, and encourage聽students to participate in Cambridge and national elections. Through the unions students are represented on many of the main committees that govern the College and their views are taken seriously.
