Middle Common Room (MCR)
The Middle Common Room (MCR) is the student body of the College and all students automatically become members upon joining the College, unless they elect to opt out. The MCR President and other members of the elected committee represent the students at various College meetings and can be a strong voice for students. The President and Fellows of the College welcome input on the future of the College from the MCR. There are elections to MCR Committee posts in Michaelmas term and in Trinity term.
The MCR organises many and varied social events throughout the year and encourages students to get involved, make suggestions and give feedback about their college experience. The MCR’s social calendar, otherwise known as the Event Card, will be communicated by email and published on their website and their Facebook group at www.facebook.com/groups/kelloggmcr. The Facebook group also acts as a social hub for students to organise movie nights, pub trips/quizzes, punting, exchange dinners and various other social activities. Photos from major events, such as the Kellogg Ball, are hosted on the MCR Facebook page, www.facebook.com/KelloggMCR. You will automatically become a member of the MCR MS Teams groups, which are another way to keep in touch with fellow students.
Students can use the Richardson Lounge on the ground floor next to the computer room, and the small kitchen behind reception. The common room space in The Hub may be used when the café is open. If Covid-19 restrictions apply, please check the Kellogg and Covid-19 website pages for access details to both the Richardson Room and The Hub.
