Livers-In

Many of our members are postgraduate students who are residents of St Aidan's College. Some of these students are on catered contracts, and have food provided by the college during term time, while others self cater. The SCR looks after the interests of all postgraduates living in college via our Postgraduate Reps

Residents (and other SCR members) can make use of all of the JCR facilities within college as part of their SCR Membership. This includes the Gym, Bar and Library amongst other things. See our facilities page for further information.

Catering Information

For those living in College or Durham University Business School who are on catered contracts, meals are taken in the College Dining Hall. It is expected that the SCR sits at the High Table.
