JCR Committee


The JCR Committee is made up of a group of Christ's students who have been elected to represent the views of the undergraduate students at college and university level. The central role of the JCR Committee is to represent the interests and look after the welfare of the student body. This could include anything from running events to discussing food, accommodation or access in our meetings. Each member of the JCR committee has a specific responsibility. Find out more about each position below!

Hey, I'm Miles, the JCR Webmaster! I built the website you're currently looking at, and am constantly working to improve it. Please drop me an email if you find any bugs, or want to suggest a feature / improvement! Future plans included a list of societies, a better upper hall menu, and a room database.
