Students' Club Activities

The St Andrew’s College Students’ Club

St Andrew’s College Students’ Club is the representative body for our undergraduate residents running a range of Junior Common Room (JCR) activities through a number of sub-committees, all overseen by the elected House Committee.


The history of our Student’s Club dates back as far as 1896. The first Senior Student was elected in 1896 and the Students’ Club was emerging in form by 1901. Sometime after 1902, a Student’s Club constitution was adopted in which the students undertook the duty of controlling the students’ Junior Common Room, recreation, social life and sport.

It is clear that by 1906 the Students’ Club was in full operation, with annual elections for Senior Student, Secretary, Treasurer, and year representatives. By 1910, the House Committee included nine members, and sub-committees began to form to organise various Students’ Club activities, in a manner similar to today.
