Founded in 1964, the Somerville Middle Common Room (MCR) is the association for postgraduate students at Somerville. The acronym ‘MCR’ is interchangeably used to refer both to the body of students and to the physical common room shared by MCR members.
Postgraduates at Somerville come from a diverse background, both academically and geographically, with members coming to Oxford from all over the world. Somerville is an excellent place to work and study, and its friendly and tight knit community make it a wonderful place to call home during your studies.
You can find the MCR in our building, Margery Fry House, usually full of heavily caffeinated members. Margery Fry also contains study spaces, kitchens, and TV rooms, some of which can be booked out for personal use.
