A little information on who we are, and why we're here.
The MCR (Middle Combination Room) is the graduate community within Jesus College. The aim of the MCR Committee is to represent the opinions and needs of graduate students to the College fellowship and the University, to maintain links with the Graduate Union and other MCRs, to facilitate the interaction of graduates with fellows, and perhaps most importantly to offer a wide range of social and academic opportunities targeted specifically towards the graduate community. The Committee also offers an initial point of contact if you have social or welfare issues and if we cannot help you directly we will refer you to the people who can!
Within the College grounds is the MCR room. As well as being the room where your pigeonhole is (and therefore where your mail is delivered) we hope you will use this space regularly throughout your time at Jesus. The MCR room has a widescreen TV (with Freeview), a DVD player, an Xbox Kinect, a sound system, sofas and, perhaps most importantly, a coffee machine. We also have a selection of newspapers, magazines, fiction books from the library, board games, and a croquet set for your use.
For more information about the MCR, College, and the city of Cambridge, please take a look at the MCR Wiki page (link opens a new tab/page). This resource is curated by not just the committee, but any student in the graduate community. Only current students can access the wiki. If you are a Freshers, you'll recieve all the info you need via emails from our Grad Mum. If you have any questions, please do email someone on the MCR Committee!.
Graduates apply to the university, rather than Jesus College. While filling out your application, you'll have the option of specifying Jesus as your college
Our 'grad mum' Sheena will be in touch if you are accepted into Jesus MCR. Sheena will send you information on housing, and point you towards resources (like our wiki) you need.
Our MCR has an action packed fortnight of events, so we encourage people to arrive a week before term starts. Check out our documents area below for annotated maps of Jesus College and Cambridge.
From historical tours, to cocktail nights and punting, there are events everyone. Find the time table for 2015 here
The graduate office is a first port of call for questions related to your time at Jesus. Students should check out Jnet for information on tutorial hours and contact details, or you can email the graduate office directly by clicking on the paper planes.
Deputy Graduate Tutor
Graduate Secretary/Grad Mum
In addition to the graduate tutors, there are tutorial advisors who are always there to help with questions that may go beyond the academic or administrative. You can find more details on Jnet, but for urgent matters it's important to note that 24 hours a day you can get in contact with a tutorial adivisor. Just call the Porter's Lodge and ask for the tutor on duty.
