Trevelyan College
Senior Common Room

Welcome to the Trevelyan SCR web site. These pages provide useful information for both current and prospective members of the Senior Common Room.

We have a packed line up of dinners, lectures and events this term. Before the exam period we have a Joint Formal and an SCR Dinner with a talk from Hannah Earnshaw, one of the candidates for the ambitious Mars One mission. We then have the annual GM Trevelyan Prize Dinner and then after the exam period the annual Julian Trevelyan Art Competition with an additional category this year to design a stained glass window for the new Chapel. Lots more of other events in between as well, so keep up to date with details below and the SCR calender.

Events Coming Up

  • Thursday 11th June 2015: The SCR/MCR Vs JCR Cricket Match at Maiden castle (MC2). The countdown has started to the clash of the titans: the third of the annual epic battle for the Trevs Ashes.
