The Common Room is the hub of all social activity in college and was created by our founding president, Isaiah Berlin, to promote the democratic, social and cultural life of the College.
The Common Room includes all members of the College and other individuals who have been elected by the Governing Body. Common Room membership brings with it most of the privileges including dining rights in Hall, use of the library and sports facilities, room hire and eligibility for membership of most College committees.
