JCR & JCR Exec

All students of the college are part of the Junior Common Room (JCR). The JCR Executive ('Exec') are the 14 students who are elected by all the JCR to be the voice of the college’s student body. Their role is to organise a wide range of activities and support to ensure the best student experience ever!

JCR socials range from live music and quizzes or trips to theme parks or zoos, to nights out to other cities such as Liverpool or Manchester. The Christmas Ball and Summer Extrav are two of the bigger events which you certainly won’t want to miss out on.

The college is nothing without the involvement and participation of all of its students so make sure you get involved and make the most of your time in County. If you're interested in becoming a member of the JCR Exec, visit the Student Union website to find out more details on what each role entails. Students are emailed regularly by LUSU with information on upcoming elections. If you want to organise a County club or event, email the JCR Exec, or Ali Moorhouse, the College Manager.

Vice President: Democracy and Finance

Hey, I’m Callum, your Democracy and Finance Officer and a first year LUMS student. My role is a little more behind the scenes than many of the other positions but I help with the smooth running of everything the JCR does! As part of my role I assist in College elections with responsibility for the conduct and running of electing JCR Officers, as well as helping to promote the Students’ Union elections. I am the Chair and Secretary for JCR Exec meetings which involves setting the time and date of meetings, keeping meetings on topic and taking minutes to be published. The final part of my role is overseeing all of the financial business of the JCR Exec including preparing budgets for big events such as Welcome Week, Extrav and the Winter Ball.
