Welcome to the official website of the Junior Common Room of Josephine Butler College.

Butler JCR is a membership-lead community of students which sits outside of their academic commitments. We aim to be accessible, environmentally focused and to be part of Durham city’s wider community. With more than 80 different student groups, there’s so many ways #GetInvolved and we are committed to make sure everyone can.

Hey everyone! I’m Sam (He/Him), your JCR President for the year. My role is to oversee the activities that the JCR runs, keep in touch with current and past students, and to represent the common room outside of college. Though I’ve graduated now, my time at Butler left me with enough enthusiasm to stick around in a sabbatical role and remain part of the community here. 

The sign of a successful year for me will be an engaged, active JCR. During your time at Butler you have a whole universe of opportunities to make the most of and every single one of you can leave a legacy here. I hope this year more than ever this JCR can grow to represent our community and ALL of its members. 

Sam Winder (He/Him)
President of Josephine Butler JCR
