Chad’s MCR has a bustling social life with something for all tastes.

Many students stop by the common rooms to have a tea or coffee and a natter between lectures. During term time, there’s usually always a handful or two of postgraduates in the College bar, which offers cheap beverages all evenings 8–11pm.

We also have a social calendar to help everyone get through the academic terms (as well as during the summer of dreaded diss-writing for master’s students). The MCR Social Committee regularly host a wide variety of events for postgraduate students, including film nights in College and parties such as fancy-dress Hallowe’en and Thanksgiving.

The MCR also has a beer-tasting society, a wine-tasting society, and a croquet club… As it stands they all need someone to run them so chat to a member of the committee if you’re interested!

During term time, College hosts ‘formal halls’ almost every Tuesday and Thursday. It’s much more relaxed than the formal dress code suggests (and Chad’s is very laid-back about these things anyway): formals are simply a nice meal with friends with a trip to the bar afterwards… Sign up with your university log-in.

Postgraduate students are also welcome at most JCR-organised events, such as the annual garden party. The JCR also run College balls.
