The Gilchrist Postgraduate Club

The Club opened in October 2012 and is for Postgraduate Taught students, Postgraduate Research students & staff of the University. The club is designed to give PG students and staff space to both study and socialise in.

The Gilchrist provides a comfortable and friendly environment in which postgraduates can engage with one another on both social and academic levels. The club features a seminar room, which can be booked out to host numerous events such as meetings, small lectures, research workshops or presentations. The seminar room can host around 50 people in seminar-style seating and has tables that can be set up in board room style for meetings. Please consult our guide if you wish to book the seminar room.

The Gilchrist also offers study booths, which have integrated TV screens with AV connections, allowing students to link-up their laptops and display information onto the screen for everyone around the booth to see.

The club has its own café/bar with food and drink provisions, including Barista tea and coffee making facilities, a wide selection of hot and cold foods and snacks and a selection of alcoholic beverages, including bottled beers, wines and spirits. We have launched a new range of hot drinks for Winter as well, check the menu here.

Access is granted through a swipe card entry system using their GUID card. The club is open:

  • Monday – Friday 8am – 11pm
  • Saturday 10am – 5:30pm
  • Sunday 12 Noon – 5:30pm

These hours are for term time.  Hours may vary over holidays and the summer.
