Welcome to Grey College SCR

Welcome to Grey College Senior Common Room (SCR), a vibrant community within Durham University of both academics and members of the wider local community.

We support the Grey College community, both academically and socially, enjoying a wide range of dinners, talks and other events.

If you wish to join the SCR and meet a wide range of new people, you can apply for membership.

As an important component of Grey College, the SCR provides both intellectual stimulation and cultural benefits. For example: art exhibitions, musical events, talks and trips. During term, dining facilities are available at High Table on a daily basis and regular formal dinners are held when the whole college can dine together in style. The events list provides further details of forthcoming events.

One of the primary aims of the SCR is to support the student body, fostering an environment which allows students to fulfil both their social and academic potential.

A Message from the President

Welcome to Grey College SCR. I am sure that you will enjoy the Fellowship with the other SCR members and with the students at Grey College. Please come to as many of the SCR events as you can. I am very grateful for your support. 

Professor Alan Martin, FRS
President, Grey College SCR
