Your Life at JCH

Janet Clarke Hall students take their academic life seriously, and are encouraged by the College and by each other to achieve their full potential.

In turn, the smaller size of the College means that our staff and tutors are able to pay personal attention to our students, and to foster a culture in which a busy extracurricular life encourages, rather than detracts from, outstanding results.

While living in residence, here are some of the varied ways you might wish to get involved in College life:

Lead

Lead

‘I think it’s cool that the Student Club is an independent body, has control over its committees, and that we have so many opportunities to lead. I am on two committees – environments and ball committee – and it has given me the chance to get involved and contribute to college life.’

Study

‘Everything is on tap in College – tutors, study spaces, text books, and we have access 24/7.’

Reflect

‘I don’t feel any pressure to conform at JCH, which is pretty refreshing. I really appreciate how open-minded everyone is and that discussion of varying ideas is totally accepted.’

Serve

‘We are pretty privileged in College, so it’s great to give something back to the local community, and to remind people of good causes – be it spending time with the migrant kids at the local primary school, or dyeing hair for cancer research.’

Gather

'Sitting down with friends at breakfast is such a lovely way of starting the day. Coming back to JCH for lunch is also so convenient and it breaks up my long uni days with some laughter and socialising.'

Dress up

'The big events we have are fancier than usual, so it's fun that we all get a bit more hyped about dressing up for it.’

’I love being able to play at dinners knowing that everyone is going to cheer me on ’.
