The Welfare Team

The MCR Welfare team is wholly committed to our students’ welfare – if you encounter any problem during your studies or have questions about where to access resources, do get in touch with our Welfare Officers.

Please visit St Anne’s Welfare Page for more information, including the contact details of our wonderful Welfare Staff (Nurse, Dean of Welfare, Disability Co-ordinator, Assistant Deans) and the different kinds of support you can access via the University.

Welfare Tea and Cake

Sundays, 3:00 pm (Week 1-8), EPH Common Room

Your welfare officers welcome you every Sunday in the Common Room to have some tea, biscuits and cake. It is a good opportunity to relax with friends, or meet your reps should you have any welfare concern.


A few times a year, on request

Depending on demand, we sometimes organize meditation sessions in the weekend to spend a relaxing time together and wind off after a busy week.

Movie Nights

1-2 times a term, 8:00 pm, EPH Common Room or Study Room

A few times a term, we gather in the Common Room or the Study Room to watch a movie. We also sometimes organize special movie nights, for instance for Valentine’s Day.

Be Well, Do Well Events

Once a term, 5:30-6.30 pm, Tsuzuki Lecture Theatre

These events are organized by College to help students achieve their full potential. They usually take the form of panel discussions or talks, and an opportunity to share success stories or discuss other welfare matters. Past events have included a panel discussion on taking up leadership roles, and a talk on the importance of sleep. Events are advertised in the What’s On newsletters.
