Dear MCR members,

There are a few things I would like to draw your attention to.

There was a security incident last week during which an individual not part of College was found tampering with our post. Fortunately, the Porter acted swiftly and none of our students’ post was affected. In light of this recent incident, I have been asked to remind MCR members to not let others through locked doors unless you are absolutely certain you know who they are. This would apply to not just the post room, but also the staircases, library, gym and also bike sheds. Please ensure that doors are closed behind you. Additionally, if you notice anything suspicious, please report to the Porters’ Lodge promptly on (01223) 336 000.

The Graduate Union (GU) Executive Committee positions will be open for nominations between Oct 13th – 27th. To register your interest or for more information, email The GU elections will be held on Nov 3rd.

Lastly, the Bursar will be speaking to the MCR community about College’s finances and support for graduate students on Mon Nov 10th at 7:30pm. You are more than welcome to attend should you be interested in a general overview of College’s finances. I will notify you of the venue as the date draws near.

As always, feel free to get in touch with me or anyone on the committee should you have any queries or concerns about college life.
