Library and Quiet Room
The Tate Library is on the first floor of the college in the Main Building. It has reading spaces, desktop computers, printing and scanning facilities, an up-to-date book collection, and a self-issue stystem. More information can be found via the Library's website section.
The Quiet Room can be found on the Holywell Street side of the main site. With comfy sofas and a TV this is a room for all students to take a break from the bustle of college life.
Common Rooms and Bar
The Junior Common Room (JCR) is the association of undergraduate students at Harris Manchester. The JCR Committee is elected by all undergraduate students. Its role is to represent students within college and in the wider University, and to organise a variety of events throughout the year.
The JCR's space in the Main Building includes one of the few student-run bars in Oxford.
The Middle Common Room (MCR) is the association of postgraduate students at Harris Manchester. The MCR is located in one of the graduate houses on site, which also contains a kitchen for use by all members of the MCR. MCR members are also members of the JCR and have access to all JCR facilities.
The college Chapel is a place of worship for the whole college community, for people of all denomiations and none. Everyone is most welcome to attend services or just to sit for a while during a busy college term. The Chapel is also used for musical practices and performances, and students are welcome to use the college pianos. More information may be found via the Chapel's website section.
Harris Manchester is ideally placed within a sporting context as it is a short walk to the University Club astroturf and the University Parks sporting facilities. As HMC is a relatively small college, we often team up with Mansfield College and Wadham College for inter-collegiate sport, and HMC members often make up a sizeable contingent of the Wadham Boat Club.
