Social Life and the

Student Community

Social Life in


Life in Oxford isn't only about studying. Beyond your academic studies here, you can be as busy or relaxed as you want – there is a huge range of activities, clubs, societies and sport on offer. You can find a community outside college through the many university societies and clubs, which bring together students from across colleges who have shared interests. In addition, Trinity has its own student-led clubs, which range from student publications and debating societies to the Trinity Players (who produce two dramatic productions per year), the college Orchestra, and sport clubs including netball, tennis, cricket, rowing, football, dance... and ultimate frisbee. The JCR committee has its own entertainment reps, who organise social events in college, from karaoke nights to college parties and outings in and around Oxford.



As an undergraduate, you automatically become a member of the Junior Common Room (JCR). The JCR plays an active role in social life around college and works with college committees and officers to ensure a positive student experience for undergraduates. 

Our wonderful JCR have put together an alternative prospectus to help incoming and on-course postgraduate students make sense of the jargon you’re likely to come across. This is also a ‘no nonsense’ guide to making your life a little easier with key information on contacts, accommodation, and welfare information. Trinity JCR Alternative Prospectus
