About the MCR
New College MCR is one of Oxford's most loved graduate communities. Whether for our famous Guest Night dinners every odd week of term, our modern graduate facilities which are now located in the Weston Sports Pavilion or our interactive and dynamic members, the MCR never fails to impress.

  • With currently 287 members, comprised of: graduate students, visiting students, 4th-year undergraduates and associate members, we are one of the biggest graduate communities of all Oxford colleges.
  • Almost 50 percent of our members are international students, with people from over 25 different countries.
  • Academic variety: Our students pursue studies and research in a wide range of subjects from fine arts to engineering.
  • It is worthwhile to mention that we are also one of Oxford's oldest graduate common rooms, having been established in 1963, a reflection of the serious priority that New College affords its graduate community.

The MCR Committee
Our MCR committee are responsible for organising social, welfare, sporting and cultural events for our members, as well as representing the student body to college. We run numerous dinners, parties and social events, as well as supporting our members academically through graduate colloquia and the MCR's peer-reviewed journal: The New Collection.
