A message from college that the downstairs TV room will be closed today until Friday for the room to be painted.
In light of recent events, I would like to take a moment to clarify the stance of the MCR regarding publicising events.
The MCR does not back any particular set of political or religious beliefs or lifestyle. While we may advertise events of a political or religious nature at times in the Gazette, this is not intended as an endorsement of these events, but rather as simply a way of passing on information to all MCR members.
We appreciate any feedback you may have about this; please feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any comments.
I hope you all have an excellent week.

2. The GU will be hosting an EGM (Extraodinary General Meeting) on Thursday February 27 at 1pm to speak about the 2014 GU constitution. For more information, visit http://www.gradunion.cam.ac.uk/2014/02/gu-constitution-extraordinary-general-meeting/
3. A message from CUSU regarding unpaid non-academic student debt
Yesterday the OFT ruled that students will no longer be prevented from graduating if they have unpaid non-academic student debt, including payments like Kitchen Fixed Charges, library fines and rent. You can read more about this ruling here: http://www.oft.gov.uk/shared_oft/consumer-enforcement/OFT1522.pdf
CUSU together with Junior and Middle Combination Rooms across Cambridge welcomes the OFT’s ruling. We look forward to seeing how the Collegiate University will review its terms and conditions in light of this decision.
