To those that are unaware the booking for the meal is staggered by year groups: 3rd and 4th years, 2nd years, 1st years and finally MCR and guests. 

Ents only tickets will be open through out the entire week!


For those that are worried about not being able to attend the ENTS TICKETS WILL NOT SELL OUT. 

If you want to try for the meal wait until your booking slot and see if there are still tickets available so that you do not book on to both a MEAL AND ENTS and ONLY ENTS ticket.

BLOG: JCR Meeting Tomorrow!
JCR Chair
Jared Isaacs

JCR Meetings happen a few times a term and are there for every member of the JCR (this now includes you!). The Executive Committee gives reports of what they have done and what they are planning. Motions are discussed, JCR Officers are elected and Executive Committee positions are husted for. JCR Meetings are not compulsory to attend, however it is the primary way the JCR Exec report to the student body, and where you can have a say in how the JCR functions. Sport/society members are required to sign in so ensure their group receive their allocated budget (10% of members must attend and sign in).



A motion is put before the whole JCR is discussed and then voted on in the meeting. There are different sorts of motions including Financial Motions or Constitutional Motions. Examples include the passing of our Accounts, the creation of new societies (e.g. Grey Feminism, Grey Disney).


JCR Officers?

JCR Officers are elected in the JCR Meeting. Anyone interested in the position stands up in front of the JCR, makes a short speech for why they should be elected and then answers questions. JCR officers include more serious roles, e.g. the International Rep or the Social Treasurer, as well as the more fun roles such as the Keeper of the Grey College Trout or the Commander-in-Chief of the Grey Army.


Executive Committee? Hustings?

The Executive Committee are members of the JCR who have been elected to lead and serve the rest of the JCR. Responsible for the day-to-day running of the JCR, they organise events and strive to not only maintain the high standards of the JCR but also to improve it. Those wishing to run for an Exec position need to address a nomination form to the JCR Chair signed by two or more JCR members, a manifesto, and posters if they wish. Campaigning begins once nominations close on the Wednesday prior to the JCR Meeting. During the meeting those running for a position give a three minute speech before answering questions. You can vote in Exec elections via the “Online Services” -> “Elections” tab on the Grey JCR Website. If you’re interested in running for an Exec role, speak to Jared Isaacs the JCR Chair for more information.
