All students received an email with the subject “Ustinov College Optional Charges” today. It contains important information about the levy!
By paying the GCR levy, you become a member of the GCR. This means that you can enjoy numerous benefits including:
- Reduced prices for formal tickets and trips

The GCR uses the money to host countless events throughout the year, such as pub quizzes, movie nights, open mic nights, parties, and formals. It also provides our numerous clubs and societies with funding for equipment and pitch fees. Induction Week will give you a very condensed impression of the things we do!
