New Student Information

Please note that there is some construction taking place near the entrance to the Castle!

Access to College is not affected. 

Below you can find information and documents that you will find helpful in preparing for your time at Castle.

If you are a New or Returning Student please join our Facebook page HERE! It is a great way to ask questions and find out what is going on within the MCR.

The MCR of University College represents the body of postgraduate students in the college. This includes all PhD, Masters, and PGCE students.


As a dynamic, distinctive, vibrant, and scholarly community, we serve as the focal point for Castle postgraduates, offering traditional formal hall dinners, a wide variety of social events, academic seminars and lectures, mentoring opportunities, numerous sports clubs and societies, and much more.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch by e-mail - the details of the MCR Executive Committee can be found here.

MCR Handbook

The MCR Handbook explains everything you need to know about the MCR. You can find information about our Executive Officers, Academic Events, Welfare, Facilities, Formals, and other general information about the MCR and Castle.

Formal Guide

Formals are an incredibly fun social event that you should definitely make the most of during your time at Castle. They can, however, seem bizarre before you get used to them, but don’t let this put you off! Hopefully this document will clarify the rules and traditions so that you can enjoy attending formals at ease.
