Social Life @ Murray Edwards

The MCR Committee organises all sorts of events!

This year we’ve had: salsa dancing, movie screenings, pancake brunches, wine and cheese nights, family events and a Stranger Things themed party!

If there’s an event you’d like to organise, the MCR can support you. In the past students have organised celebrations for Diwali, Lunar New Year, International Womens’ Day and other special occasions.

Besides this, we have a really friendly and supportive community. Whether or not you live in College, there’s always a chance to share a cup of tea or a glass of wine, play a game of pool or ping pong, or even get your hands dirty in the garden.

College sports, music and societies

There are many societies and sports for all students at Murray Edwards College, from hockey to choir. There are also subject societies to support your academic development and are a great way of getting to know other students on your course.

University societies

All Murray Edwards College students are part of the wider Cambridge University Student Union and Graduate Union. The University of Cambridge has the largest number of clubs and societies of any university in Britain. A list of all the University societies is available online. You will find that there are endless opportunities to socialise outside college with any one or more of these clubs and societies.
