The College and the University provide a wide range of practical support for students.
At Hughes, every student is allocated an individual Tutor who is an experienced member of the University and the College, and who can provide direction to support and guidance for practical and academic aspects of a student’s career at the University. The College also has an on-site nurse and counsellor available to students for a wide variety of health and welfare needs.
On the College campus, students have access to IT support, study spaces, a dining hall, College clubs and societies through the MCR (the student association in the College), and the public meeting rooms and student common room. Parking is available for some students on specific courses, such as the PGCE or Graduate Course in Medicine, or for those with required disability adjustments.
Students who require specific adjustments for a disability should start discussions with us during the admissions process, ensuring they have appropriate access to any tailored support and specialist facilities during their career in Cambridge. More details are available in the section on student welfare.
Student Body (MCR)
The Hughes Hall Middle Combination Room (MCR) is a focal point for all students of the College, who automatically become members when they matriculate. The MCR organise a wide range of social events for students, and have access to a multi-purpose room in the College. The room serves as a place to relax with friends over coffee, has a well-stocked bar, and is the location for events like bops, quizzes, bands, and watching sports.
