Our Reception Desk is staffed throughout opening hours to provide additional information and assistance. Please note that the Graduate Centre is a non-smoking building, although there is a designated smoking area on the north end of the balcony.

The Graduate Centre is supplied with a number of bins for collection of recyclable materials (paper, paper cups, aluminum and steel cans, plastic and glass bottles, plastic food containers e.g. sandwich packs).  We encourage you to use these bins; please do not contaminate them with food or non-recyclable's. 

Consultation on the future development of the Graduate Centre
In March 2014, the Graduate Centre initiated a consultation with postgraduates to look at how the future development of our facilities and services could best meet the growing needs of our users. Whilst this process is still ongoing, with a view to creating a plan for development in 2015, the results of our initial consultation can be viewed as a PDF document from the resources on the left-hand margin. We are continually looking for student input, and if you would also like to feed in your ideas and suggestions, please email us at:
