Information for New Students
St Cross is an egalitarian college and, unlike undergraduate colleges, has a single Common Room for all members and no high table in the hall. This means that senior and junior members of the college regularly integrate.
As President of Common Room I chair the monthly meetings of the Common Room Committee (CRC) and preside over the election of student officers. I am supported in my role by fellow senior members of the CRC, the Student President and members of the Student Representative Committee.
The CRC is committed to ensuring that the Common Room and the communal areas of the college are welcoming places for all members and arranges a number of events throughout the year. The CRC is proud to host the annual College Ball in June, which is organised by the Ball Committee.
If you are interested in getting involved in college activities and becoming a member of the CRC please contact me. Elections for positions on the Student Representative Committee are held at the end of Michaelmas term, to begin on 1st January each year, while elections for other posts are held later in the year. Further details will be sent out closer to the time.
With very best wishes,
Dr Petros Ligoxygakis
President of Common Room
