Tour Locations | Know your Oxford: tour with AR for new and prospective students
Hello again. Are you back out on the street? Good. Now, with your back to the market, turn right and start walking.
The building on your left, across the street, is part of Jesus College. For many students, life revolves around your college. I’m in Merton College. It was a bit daunting when I first arrived, but to ease the process, I was assigned a set of college parents, who are students in the year above - usually with one who studies your subject. They make you feel at home, and show you where everything is. I’ve made a lot of friends there now. Like other colleges, we have a great JCR, which stands for Junior Common Room. It’s really the hub of college life - there, we have weekly meetings, where students can voice their opinions on life at college. Normally, the JCR is a great place for students to come together - to chill out, even play table tennis! If you’re a graduate student, MCR, or Middle Common Room, is the equivalent. They also have their own room.
Ok, follow this road round to the left. So when it's safe, cross over to the left hand side of the street.
