We are in exciting times as the JCR is in the midst of renovation.
These are expected to be done by the 18th of April, a few days before 0th week.
Expect to see some new chairs and a fresh lick of paint as one of the many things coming to greatly increase accessibility and general comfort.

so it seems we are having issues with logins at the moment

it should be sorted in time as we have a small virtual server with not much memory and so we can't expect ludicrous speeds

if the trouble persists past 24h do email

1. Committee had a discussion of the college's disability policy, which has been updated on this website - also you can ask Marianne and Juliet who are now experts.

3. The potential Codebar Workshop has morphed into pizza and computers run by members of the JCR, watch out for that next week!
