The JCR is the Junior Common Room. It is made up of all the undergraduates at Van Mildert and acts as their governing body. Each college at Durham has it's own JCR, and each operates autonomously of the others.
Whilst, the JCR and College aren't the be-all and end-all of a typical student life, it really is the core of a Durham student's life. It makes up everything 'fun' you'll do outside of your academic work and is where almost all your friends will be.
JCR Meetings: Whole JCR meetings are held three times a term, where Exec report what they’ve been up to, we vote changes anyone wants to make to the JCR and best of all we have hustings for elections! All JCR decisions are subject to vote; depending on how the outcome will affect the JCR these may be taken by a general 'aye', a show of hands, or a full-scale referendum. To find out more come along to a meeting!
