Welfare Officers

There are two Welfare officers on the JCR committee, the Women’s Welfare Officer and the Men’s Welfare Officer. To find out who they currently are, go here. They are great people to talk to if you have any problems or just fancy a chat, and always have a supply of restorative tea and biscuits. They can be found in the JCR office during their office hours which will be published early in the term. They offer advice on any issues from work to health, and can point you in the right direction for further help.


Your Tutor is here to help with any problems you have relating to your welfare – they want to make sure you stay well and happy while you’re at Girton! There are College Nurses who have visiting hours and are here to help with any health is-sues (they have painkillers, bandages etc. and are great to talk to if you have any problems). The college nurse can be found in the Health and Welfare Centre on A corridor during the set office hours.

College Parents

You should be contacted by College parents during the summer. They are great people to talk to about any issues you may have, particularly work issues as they’ve been where you are now. They should be around your first weekend to show you around and help you settle in. If by the time term starts you have not been contacted by college parents please ask any questions to jcr-welfare-men@girton.cam.ac.uk or jcr-welfare-women@girton.cam.ac.uk.
