Welcome to Selwyn College MCR

Selwyn Old CourtSelwyn College MCR (Middle Combination Room) is the society for post-graduate members of Selwyn College, one of the thirty-one colleges of the University of Cambridge. The MCR exists to help make graduate life at Selwyn more enjoyable by arranging events for its members, and providing a comfortable environment in which to relax after a hard day's work. The MCR has a room in C staircase of Old Court, in which there are magazines, tea and coffee-making facilities, computers and a television.

The MCR is run by a student volunteer committee, who can be contacted if there are any concerns or issues you wish to raise. The committee also arrange events throughout the year at which postgraduate students can get to know each other outside of the confines and rigors of research. These events have, in the past, included formal dinners, cocktail evenings, and ceilidhs.

The purpose of the MCR is to create a friendly, inclusive, and welcoming environment for all graduate students, particularly for those from different countries and cultures.

More information about the MCR can be found on these web-pages, via the menu on the left. If you would like to contact a member of the committee, their e-mail addresses can be found in the "MCR Information" section, under "MCR Committee".

Our Freshers' Month events are available here .
