The Graduate Centre rooms are not part of the University Pool Room system, but are booked directly with the Graduate Centre.  The Graduate Centre staff reserve the right to refuse bookings that are deemed incompatible with other Centre activity.  

A Booking Form must be completed in order to confirm usage. Forms can be downloaded from the Related Resources on our Room Bookings webpage.

The meeting rooms may be booked by currently enrolled postgraduate students and postgraduate societies for group study, meetings and events for postgraduates (such as conference or social events).  

The Common Room can be booked by currently enrolled postgraduate students and postgraduate societies for conference or social events, but the space must remain open for other users. Specific areas or groups of tables can be reserved.

Academic Schools, Professional Services and the Students’ Union may also book the meeting rooms or Common Room for events aimed primarily at postgraduates or to advance postgraduate interests.

Because of high demand from postgraduates, normally the Graduate Centre is unable to accommodate bookings for meetings or events that do not involve the postgraduate community. Exceptions are granted for university-wide events such as Open Days or Graduation. We will occasionally accommodate Students’ Union officer-hosted events on a quid pro quo basis, but the Graduate Centre rooms are not available for use by Students’ Union Societies whose membership is not primarily postgraduate.

The Cathays Park Graduate Centre rooms are only rarely available for external organisations.  Approval is on a case-by-case basis and will always incur a charge for room hire and equipment use and additional charges may be applied.  The Heath Park Graduate Centre is not available for external booking.

A University identification card must be left at the start of room use, which will be returned when the room is vacated.
