Administrative history

The Men's Residence Council was made up of members, including the Dean of Men and members from the men's residence houses, who were responsible for all matters of general concern to the whole men’s residence, including acquisition of art, residence athletic programmes, social events, supervision of seminars and other intellectual activities, and relations with the administration (Residence Committee, Bursar, etc.). The Council consisted of a president, a returning officer, a member from each house, dons and at points either the Dean of Men or the Senior Tutor. The equivalent body for women's residents was the Annesley Student Government Association.

In 1990, with the creation of the Dean of Students position, residence councils fell under that office's purview.
