The GCR or Graduate Common Room is the student body at Green Templeton College. It is run by a committee, governed by the GCR President. The committee represents the students to the College, with office-holders sitting on Governing Body and other College committees.


The new GCR Committee will be elected during Michaelmas term.


See the GCR website.

Governing Body

The College’s Governing Body is made up of the Principal and all the Fellows, plus nominees from the Research Fellows and students as co-opted members. A number of committees of Governing Body exist, most of which include student representation.


See a list of the College Committees.

The ceremony at which students are awarded their degrees. Graduation ceremonies (or 'degree days') take place on specific days in the Sheldonian Theatre. Booking is essential; students will receive information about how to book in the November before they are due to complete their programme (taught students) or when they receive leave to supplicate (research students). There is usually some form of celebration in College.


All outstanding bills to College must be paid before a degree is conferred. The College reserves the right not to present a student for graduation if their account has not been paid.

Two double guest rooms are available for visitors, in addition to any student rooms which may be vacant. Enquiries should be directed to Nick Martin.


Students may have one visitor overnight in their own rooms for up to 3 nights in any period of 7 days. This period can be extended in special circumstances on application to the Bursar. Any visitors staying longer than 3 nights must otherwise rent a guest room.
