James College Junior Common Room

James College celebrates the diversity of it students and offers a wide range of opportunities for them to meet new people and try new experiences. We pride ourselves on our strong community spirit, where everyone feels valued and encouraged to make the most out of their time at University.

James College has the best events, facilities and sports teams around. On top of that, we are the only college where all First Year students are in catered rooms, so all of our Freshers eat together monday-friday. This gives us a fantastic community atmosphere, where no one ever needs to feel alone.

Our Freshers’ Week

James College does Freshers Week better than any other! We’re known for our inclusive, diverse and high-quality events, and this year your James JCRC has put together the most action-packed week yet, it’s literally got it all!

Voted York's "best value for money" Freshers' Week in 2017, James College knows how to make sure you have a great time, whatever you're into.

We’ve lined up massive club nights and a big campus bar crawl; incredible non-clubbing events, including a York ghost walk, roller disco, cinema trip and our Big James College Quiz; as well as loads of smaller and daytime events, all designed to help you meet as many new friends as possible!
