You (and your room) could be famous!

Would you like to appear, inside your fabulously decorated college room, on the Fitz website or in admissions publications? Photos are needed for rooms in Tree Court, New Court and Wilson Court, as well as in College houses.

If you’re up for this, send a sample picture of your room to Alison Carter at, and a professional photographer will be organised to come around early next term.

This could be you!

This could be you!

International Vacation Storage

Vacation storage for international students will be in the containers in Wychfield Lane this Christmas (that’s the path running along the side of college – note it will not be in the squash courts as in summer!). If you are an international student and would like to leave your stuff in storage for the holidays, just pop along to the porters and they’ll get you to sign a form, and you can simply take your stuff over there on the day that you leave.

Happy holidays!

Moving Mountains International Development Opportunity – Borneo Expedition Summer 2015

In August 2015 Moving Mountains will be leading an expedition into the depths of the Bornean rainforest as part an international development project with the Penan people. The trip is an incredible cultural immersion in which you will be living and working alongside the Penan and helping to preserve their traditional livelihoods, which are increasingly under threat from deforestation and the palm-oil trade. Alongside this you will have the chance to sleep in hammocks in the jungle, go snorkelling in the South China Sea, and visit an Orangutan rehabilitation centre and turtle hatchery.
For more information, join the Facebook group here or email Tom Roddick (Borneo trip coordinator) at tr346 or Shulamit Morris-Evans (Secretary) at sm2034.

Following from some issues people had raised around being able to access the links and forms on the side of the JCR website from mobiles, this has now to an extent been addressed. If you go to on your mobiles or tablets, you will, if you scroll down past the recent posts, be able to access these features now.

To anyone who enjoyed that endless, and hopeless, struggle to try and click on the links before new posts loaded, I can only apologise.

Also, the buttery menu is also available as a PDF file here for those who had issues with Scribd integration on mobiles.

Tom has some exciting plans for the website next year so stay tuned but for now, my time is nearly coming to end. My last move will be to update the buttery menu at 7pm which I know you are all already excited about.
