This site aims to provide information for all current and prospective graduate students of Murray Edwards College, University of Cambridge.
All graduate students at Murray Edwards are automatically members of the Middle Combination Room (MCR). College lectrices, trainee librarians and undergraduate members in their fourth year of study at Murray Edwards are also affiliated to the MCR. As MCR members, you can enjoy use of the Room on the ground floor of Canning & Eliza Fok House. There is a varied social calendar, from formal events to nights in the Dome to a summer BBQ in the gardens. Each October, we hold a week of welcoming events as most new students arrive at that time. But no matter when you arrive, how long you are here for and what your ambitions are afterwards, we hope that the friendship and community of the MCR will be an important part of your Cambridge College life.
The MCR committee is an elected group of volunteers who run social events, provide support to various aspects of postgraduate life at Murray Edwards, and represent graduate student views in the College and University.
