Posted by crm28 at Sep 25, 2017 09:15 AM |
The First Floor Restaurant in the Charles Wilson Building has undergone refurbishment and reopened as The Graduate Lounge on Monday 25 September.

With a new look and more relaxed feel, all staff members, post graduates and visitors to campus are welcome to take advantage of the new Graduate Lounge on the first floor of the Charles Wilson Building.

There are now 142 comfortable seats in the lounge and additional work areas including bookable spaces for informal meetings. Opposite The Graduate Lounge, on the first floor's City Side, The Graduate Kitchen has an increased seating capacity so now 240 staff and postgraduates can eat a wonderful lunch in peace and quiet, with a great view too!

To celebrate the opening, we are offering every visitor during Welcome Week (25 - 29 September) a free piece of cake when you buy a hot drink.

Private dining is also now available in our private dining area located in the Graduate Kitchen that can seat up to 30 diners.  This is a pre-bookable area only and private dining is from a set menu which changes every week bringing you a wide variety of choice. You can book the private dining area by contacting

For the first time, we have also added the ability to book a booth in the Graduate Lounge. Booths serve up to 8 people and each booking receives a free jug of tea or coffee. Booths can be booked for up to an hour between 9.00am and 5.00pm, Monday - Friday, by emailing

Of course, staff, post-graduates and visitors are still more than welcome to bring their own food and drink to The Graduate Lounge.

We can't wait to welcome you to our new home!
