General Meeting

General Meeting occurs at least twice in each term and is an opportunity for all College and Common Room members to discuss any College business.

All College committees summarise their proceedings in reports to the General Meeting, at which the College Officers, including the President, Bursar and Vicegerent, are usually present. Student representation at the General Meeting is very important as it is the main meeting at which students can voice their opinions to affect College matters.

Anybody can raise an issue for discussion. If you have something that you would like to be discussed in an upcoming meeting please contact the Chair of the General Meeting or the Common Room Administrator.

There are two General Meetings per term, on the Wednesday of 2 & 7 week at 5.30 pm in the Upper Common Room.

The General Meeting manages the business of the Common Room and delegates any business to the Social and Cultural Committee as it thinks fit.

Chair of the General Meeting

Members of Common Room are entitled to vote for their Common Room Officers including the Chair of the General Meeting who is elected annually. The Chair of the General Meeting is elected at the second General Meeting of Hilary Term from amongst the members of the Governing Body. This is an important post and provides for continuity in the management of Common Room affairs.

The Chair of the General meeting sends out a weekly newsletter to all College members to announce events and services.
