How to use this website: 18.10.2016
David Jones (President)Tue Oct 18 2016 11:17:21 GMT+0100 (BST)

Hello everyone and welcome to the new blog system! In the future we will try and post the majority of our updates on here so please check regularly for important information. 

Hopefully you were all already aware that this website exists but just in case you don't, I want to highlight some features for you all:

1. Paying Debts - This website is the way in which you pay the JCR. If you click on the top right of the page on your username and select "my debt" then you can pay for an event as soon as you book on. You will no longer receive paypal requests by email so please be proactive and do this to save me and Alex time dealing with debtors. 

2. Anonymous Feedback - For those of you that don't know we have an anonymous feedback system which allows anyone to provide feedback to members of the exec. All feedback is addressed and the general responses are public in our Exec meeting minutes. However I must add that any really abusive comments will be de-anonymised and reported to the relevant bodies. 

3. Room Booking - The room booking system is currently playing up but normally you are also able to book out Fountains Hall and the TV room through the website. 

Welcome to new Grey students!

Hello new undergraduates!

Firstly a massive congratulations on your results. Whether Durham was your first choice or your reserve, you are going to love it here when you arrive in October! I am David Jones, your JCR (Junior Common Room) President, meaning that I am involved in almost every aspect of JCR life. Therefore any questions you have about Grey, or Durham as a whole, just drop me an email at and I will try to respond as soon as I can. 

You will likely receive a letter from me (or you already have!) detailing a few aspects of college life and a couple of forms to fill out. The deadline for these is Wednesday 7th September, so don't forget! Finally, please join our official Facebook page to ask any questions and get important updates about the coming year (

Again, I hope you are all delighted with your grades and I look forward to seeing you in October!
