The JCR (the room)

Most colleges have a JCR ( Junior Combination Room) that students can use like a common room/living area. Newnham currently has one JCR on first floor Clough. This has sofas, tables and a TV with DVD player – it’s perfect for having small events like birthdays or movie nights! To top it off, the JCR Committee has just purchased comfy new bean bags – make sure you try them out!

The JCR is open during the term and is free for all to use. To book the JCR please do this online by filling in this form. You need to be a current member of the college and after filling this form in your booking will be passed automatically to the Senior Porters. Please make your booking at least 24 hours before your event.

As well as the JCR, there are a number of places in college that you can book for a large gathering or party, such as the Barbecue by the playing fields, the Dorothy Garrod Party Room, or even the college bar!
