The main common room is the Combination Room (CR) situated on the ground floor of the main College building. It has a TV, a bar, and a pool table; a selection of newspapers and periodicals are available there. On the second floor of the main College building students also have the use of the Norfolk Library as a quiet area. There is also a Fitness Centre in the Library Building.
The bar is managed by the CR Bar Steward and operated voluntarily by members of the College on a rota system drawn up by the Bar Steward. The bar will normally be open between 9.30pm and midnight. Please see the Bar Steward if you are willing to tend the bar. You will be required to attend a training session before you can serve at the bar.
A copy of the Premises licence granted by the Cambridge City Council is displayed in the College bar, together with a copy of the Code of Conduct relating to bar operations. The bar is governed by regulations concerning permitted hours of opening, behaviour and underage drinking.
An official extension to the opening hours can be granted for specific occasions on application to the Bursar, who is the Designated Premises Supervisor or in his absence the Domestic Bursar who is a Personal Licence Holder. Members are asked to co-operate with the CR Bar Steward and the Security Porter who is responsible for ensuring that the official closing times are adhered to. Late licenses are by permission of the Bursar and the Senior Tutor to whom written applications should be made at least 10 days before an event. Please note that smoking is not permitted in the Bar or elsewhere in College buildings.
