General– The JCR is small so can get quite cramped under conditions of 12 people or more. Seating is available throughout, and toilets are located in the Clough corridor as well as outside Lucia Windsor. Please be aware that the furniture is often repositioned, and in some instances this can make wheelchair access difficult. If this is the case, notify the porters, who will replace the furniture to its original position. No excessive background noise.
