The St Antony’s Graduate Common Room Committee is a democratically elected group of people who ensure the Graduate Common Room of the College runs efficiently and effectively.


    It is known that there were 7 students when St Antony’s opened its doors in 1950. From that day on St Antony’s attracted brilliant students from all over the world. As C.S. Nicholls (2000) has pointed out in her History of St Antony’s College Oxford, 1950-2000:
     For many students the college was a fascinating mixture of cosmopolitanism and 1950s Britishness. British students, in particular, were struck by the number of foreigners, especially Frenchmen. In 1953 seven students were French and seven British; together they comprised half the college’s resident student body. Of the others three each came from Belgium, Israel, Germany and the United States; while Canada, Czechoslovakia, Iraq, Italy and South Africa were all represented by one student [220-1].
     Nowadays, this is even more true since St. Antony’s College is the most cosmopolitan of the seven graduate colleges of the University of Oxford! And, from the creation of a common room in 1964 to today, successive GCR committees have always shown the same motivation to represent as good as possible the diversity and the multiculturalism of their members through a series of ideas and initiatives, and a number of traditions and events, which have transformed not only the GCR but the entire College.


    Welcome to the St Antony’s GCR Website! Whether you’re an Antonian (past, present, or future), or just scoping out what we do here at the college, please feel free to poke around and see what we’re about.


    My name is Kara, and I’m thrilled and honoured to have been elected as President of the college that has been my home for so long. St Antony’s enjoys a wonderful reputation as a warm, vibrant community of grad students from all over the world. Our diversity is both our strength, and our privilege - anyone who’s visits the college will get a taste of that.


    Together, myself and the rest of the GCR committee organise social events, academic conferences, welfare events and much more. We are the custodians of our famous bops (particularly our flagship HalloQueen which turns 21 this year), and have made a name for ourselves with our lively socials. I am also certain that 2018/2019 will see Antonians continuing the proud tradition of organising challenging and thought-provoking academic events, charitable initiatives, and community building fun.


    Questions, concerns or ideas? Please do drop me an email at gcr-president@sant.ox.ac.uk


    With very best wishes,




    Kara Juul

    Hello and welcome to St Antony’s! This is a truly special place to live and study. I’m a 3rd year DPhil candidate in Oriental Studies, focusing on gender and mathematics education in Japan. I also did my masters here at St Antony's, so I am fully aware of how amazing our community (and its social and intellectual life) are, so I’m excited to be doing my part to keep that going.


    Feel more than free to come discuss ideas and concerns, whinge with me about the weather (a truly great British tradition), or just for a chat. Finally, congrats on picking the best college in the university! You won’t regret it.

    Eva Akimova

    Treasurer & Bar Manager


    I am a second-year DPhil student at the sociology department. My current research aims to combine social science and molecular genetic research. Particularly, I am wondering whether people’s genetic predispositions of certain psychological and physical abilities influence their decisions & experiences in the labour market.
     I grew up in Central Asia, studied and lived in Moscow after. This is my second year in Oxford at St. Antony’s. Apart from genetics we can have endless talks about ATP tournaments, rowing, and Russian literature, especially during my shifts at our Late Bar.

    Sam Ramani

    I'm a second year DPhil candidate in International Relations focusing on contemporary Russian foreign policy. My research focuses on Russia's increased willingness to use force in response to popular revolutions and examines the drivers of Kremlin decision-making in Syria and Ukraine. I co-organized a major conference on Russian foreign policy last year with my fellow VP Academic Nicole Grajewski, which taught us both a lot about how fulfilling it is to be actively engaged in the academic life of this college. As VP Academic, I want to provide forums for Antonians, new and old, to showcase their fascinating research interests, and benefit from the insights of the stellar range of faculty and fellows who are affiliated with our great college.

    Nicole Grajewski

    I am a second year MPhil Candidate in Russian and East European Studies. My current research focuses on Russia’s relationship with Iran in Central Asia and the Middle East.

    Research Exchange Network

    Group page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1015302781848566/


    Join the St Antony’s Research Exchange Network! Describe your research interests in a few keywords, find out what other people are doing, and get in touch! Find the group here.


    This initiative is intended to make it easier for St Antony’s students to find peers working on similar topics, but from different disciplinary or regional perspectives. While it is easy for most of us to find our academic peers who are working on the same region (at the area studies centres), it is more difficult to find peers working on the same topic, but in a different regional context or discipline, and exchange thoughts with them. This forum is intended to facilitate making connections with your ‘thematic peers’. The idea is that you post a few keywords on what you are doing research on in the group, so that others doing research on the same topic can find you and get in touch.


    The Facebook group is meant to gauge interest for the initiative, so for now, it is meant to connect you to your peers, so you can have discuss your work over a coffee or beer at St Antony’s Café or Late Bar. We encourage you to use the forum as a way to set up panels for St Antony’s Interdisciplinary Graduate Research Conference on May 5th.

    Stay tuned for more information!


    Language Immersion Nights

    How does it work? Simply respond to the weekly polls posted on this Facebook group every week, indicating the language you want to practice, or adding the language you want to offer.


    Please get in touch with Kishan Patel, the GCR Director of Global Languages, via kishan.patel@sant.ox.ac.uk if you have any questions.


  • Formal Dinners

    We host 3 formals at St Antony's and have 3 exchange dinners with other Colleges each term!

    Formal Dinners, 6.30pm at the CCR and Exchange Dinners, 6pm at the Porter's Lodge.


    Formal Dinners have a special place in academic and social life at Oxford taking on lots of different forms across colleges. Our Formal Hall is student-run and we try to make it a fun and fancy night out several times a term. It is a fantastic chance to dress up and enjoy the company of fellow Antonians, your guests and members from visiting colleges over an exquisite dinner with wine, music and a whole new air to the Hall. The evening usually begins with a champagne reception in the CCR and ends in our beloved Late Bar.


    Exchange dinners with other Colleges have a long tradition at Oxford that we foster by inviting other Colleges to our Formal Halls and visiting them for a dinner in return. It is a great way to meet members of other Colleges in a more intimate setting, visit their dining halls and spend a lovely evening together.


    Usually on a Saturday

    Hilda Besse Building, 9pm


    "BOP"s ("party" - one of those Oxford words) are definitely the biggest social events we have at St. Antony's and normally take place twice a term. Basically consisting of lots of dancing and drinks, we often pair up with Oxford University societies to offer particular themed BOPs.

    Friday Nights


    Late Bar, 9pm


    When there's not a BOP on, we try to compensate by having an event on Friday. Friday nights don't really have a recurring theme; we've welcomed societies for smaller parties, held charity events, had open mic nights, and even hosted a sit-down Turkish meze evening!


    Check back later (and keep an eye on the GCR Facebook page) for more details!

    The Global South Film Society

    Contact: maziyar.ghiabi@sant.ox.ac.uk


    The Global South Film Society is how St Antony’s would be in cinema: cosmopolitan, politically engaged, independent and collective. The only place in town and beyond where you can watch and discuss films from around the globe – from the Philippines to Iran, from Bogotà to Ramallah – with active participation, good company and freedom in its more unconventional guise. Established in Michaelmas term 2011, the GSFS is more and more involved in inter-disciplinary events, such as organising lectures and discussion roundtables.


    Everyone is welcome to join. To find out more, please visit our Facebook page.
