For Prospective Students JCR Noticeboard

A message from JCR President 2019/20


Welcome to the Somerville JCR website.

One of Somerville’s founding values is ‘including the excluded’ and that is a spirit we carry to this day. We are known for being a super friendly and laid-back college who aim to foster an environment where all, no matter who you are or where you come, can flourish. Affectionately called the ‘ville,’ the feeling of community here at Somerville is strong, and our strength comes from the incredible students and staff who come from all walks of life. As a JCR, we are continuously trying to improve the lives of all undergraduates at Somerville to make their time here, the best it can be. If you are considering applying to Somerville, this is the place, along with the official college website, to find information on what Somerville has to offer, and what to expect once you arrive here (speak it into existence, you will be here). If you are already at the ville, this blog will provide you with useful information on everything from booking onto formals, topping up food cards etc. 

The aim of this blog is to be a useful port of call for current and prospective students alike – with that said, if there is anything you feel we could improve/add to the blog, drop the President a message! I can honestly say choosing to apply to Somerville is one of the best decisions I’ve made; the community here has exceeded my hopes and provided a fantastic space to grow and learn in. Above all, it has really started to feel like home – up the ville❤️🖤.
