Welfare Officers & Student Advice Centre

Undergraduate Students:

Girton College have two Welfare Officers who are there to aid students by providing support and advice for any problems within college. Alongside welfare reps, it is their job to be active in college life, providing information about sexual health and work stress etc.  They are able to provide resources such as condoms, pregnancy tests and information on how to request chlamydia tests. Although these are important aspects of the role, the welfare officer primarily is there to, along with the nurse, provide any form of support required by all of the student body.

 

Graduate Students:

MCR stands for "Middle Common Room" (or sometimes "Middle Combination Room") and is the name for the body of graduate students at Girton College.  This includes PhDs, MPhils, LLMs and MBAs along with all other students studying postgraduate courses.  The MCR organises social events and represents postgraduate's concerns to the college.  The MCR Committee is a group of Girton graduates who try to ensure that the year runs smoothly for all members of the MCR who meet every other Wednesday in Wolfson Court where we discuss the various issues that we have or that have been brought to our attention.

There is a Welfare Officer for the Graduates

 

External to College:

CUSU & the Graduate Union provide confidential and independent support to all students through the Student Advice Service They employ a full time, Professional Student Adviser whose primary role is providing confidential support to students.

The Welfare & Rights Officer, Education Officer and Women's Officer are also able to provide support and representation. You can contact them at any time, whether it's a first point of call or a last resort. Their support is student-centred and free: they are independent from the College and the University so no one will know that you've contacted them unless you tell them.

The Graduate Union offers guidance to graduates with academic, financial and welfare concerns. If you need to discuss any issues in a confidential setting please contact the GU Welfare Officer. They will then arrange a meeting or discuss the issues by email or phone, according to your preferences.
