The Gilchrist is now open for sit-in! We are still operating under revised hours (see below for details).
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, presentations or events. 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 note that due to restrictions this number is currently reduced. Please enquire with firstname.lastname@example.org for up to date information). Please consult our guide if you wish to book the seminar room.
In addition to our café seating, the Gilchrist also offers study booths.
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. Clubs and societies often use this space as well for events such as the PhD Society which you can find in our clubs section.
Access is granted through a swipe card entry system using their GUID card. The club is open during term time:
- Monday – Friday: 8am – 11pm
We are open on weekends during the Summer break 11am - 5pm.
You can find us at A26 on the campus map.
