The Graduate Common Room (or GCR) lies at the heart of College student activities, and all Green Templeton students, irrespective of their status or place of residence, are automatically members of the GCR. Its activities are based around the bar and games room in the Stables Building in the centre of the College.
GCR clubs and social and sporting activities are organised by the GCR Committee, and are funded generously compared to many colleges. The Committee also represents the students to the College and plays an active role in its governance. For example, GCR office-holders attend the College's Governing Body and serve on its committees.
Elections for the GCR Committee are held in mid-Michaelmas term each year.
