Graduate social life in College is centred on the Middle Common Room (MCR), which is accommodated in a medieval Hall in Front Quadrangle.
The MCR is run by elected graduate officers who are responsible for organising social events and for the provision of newspapers, journals, television and video, and snacks and refreshments. Graduates are also members of the Junior Common Room (JCR) and can participate in undergraduate events such as the regular Bops at the Pavilion and the Arts Festival. Graduates play their part in the College's sporting, dramatic and musical life.
There is also the University of Oxford Newcomers' Club, an organisation whose aim is to help the newly-arrived wives, husbands or partners of visiting scholars, graduate students and newly appointed academic members of the University to settle in and to give them the opportunity to meet people in Oxford
