MCR stands for Middle Combination Room. As such, it represents both an organisation of people and also a physical room, the graduates’ common room. The latter can be found on the ground floor of Canning & Eliza Fok House. It is the space where we socialize as a graduate community, where we invite our friends or simply relax – our living room in College . This is where most MCR socials take place as well as where graduates meet casually, where they have a chat or watch a movie, where they entertain their friends or where they read a book and relax in one of our comfy armchairs.
The MCR has a TV with DVD player and Playstation, a selection of board games and books, a pool table and an e-piano for your entertainment. There is a range of armchairs and sofas and also a kitchenette with a microwave and facilities for making tea and coffee.
The MCR can be booked, through the MCR Vice-President, for social occasions if the Committee is not using it for an MCR event. Here you can find more information and details on how to book the room.
The MCR office is the area next to the MCR Common Room, which contains two computers and a printer for graduate use. The computers can be accessed with your university access data (CRS ID and personal password) and the printers can be used with your university student card.
If the printer needs more ink or paper, please email the MCR Computer Officer. Preferably email her when stocks are low rather than empty. Paper can also be collected during College business hours from the Tutorial Office.
We also have a small but exhaustive stationery store for the use of the graduates. You can find pens, pencils, staplers, folders, sharpeners and almost anything you might need when experiencing an essay or thesis crunch.
