Junior Common Room

Christ Church offers clubs, societies, and activities to satisfy and develop a wide range of interests. The college students’ union, known as the ‘Junior Common Room’ or JCR, coordinates social events and generally looks after the well-being of undergraduates.

The common room is furnished with table tennis and pool tables, and next door there is a widescreen TV with satellite channels and a DVD player. A number of subject-specific societies arrange dinners, speakers, and discussions. Discos are held regularly, and other events include band nights (to which you can bring your own band!), quiz nights, trips out, and activities that raise money for charity. The centre for many of these events is the college bar, the Undercroft, which is open from 7pm to 11pm every night.
