The Junior Combination Room (JCR) refers to the undergraduate student body at Selwyn. Members of the JCR are represented within College and the wider university by an elected JCR Committee, consisting of twenty-two officers, each with specific responsibilities. More information about the JCR, the JCR Committee, and the services the JCR provides can be found at selwynjcr.org or on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/SelwynCollegeJCR/).
7.8.1 The Common Room
The term ‘JCR’ also refers to a common room, based in Ann’s Court. Combining a bar area (including a microwave, kettle, sink, and cupboards) with a living area, it provides an informal space for members to relax, play pool or table tennis, or play video games on the Xbox 360. There is also a TV with Freeview.
The JCR is the location of ‘Sunday Tea’, a weekly event organised by the JCR Committee at which members can relax and chat over free tea, coffee, and other refreshments.
Please note that the JCR should not be used in a way which excludes others.
7.8.2 TV Room
The TV room, with its large screen, is located adjacent to the JCR and contains comfortable chairs and sofas. There is a PlayStation 4 and several games for JCR members to use, as well as a NOW TV subscription for watching live sports. It is also the venue for occasional film nights and other events, hosted by both the JCR and other Selwyn societies. Please note that members of the JCR can ‘book’ the TV Room to view a certain programme by filling in a sheet posted on a notice board outside the room, although they cannot exclude others from viewing the programme.
7.8.3 Printing and Computer Facility
Adjacent to both the JCR and the TV room, this room offers similar printing and computer facilities to those in the library – and is often much less busy, particularly during exam term. Printing costs are the same as those in the library. There is also a laminator, which is owned by the JCR and available for use by contacting the JCR Committee.
7.8.4 Sports and Societies
Members of the JCR can join and participate a wide range of sports teams and other societies within College, details of which can be found at http://selwynjcr.org/sport-societies/.
