The Gilchrist Postgraduate Club is a social and study hub for postgraduate students and staff of the University of Glasgow.

The Gilchrist Postgraduate Club opened in October 2012 and is managed by the Glasgow University Students’ Representative Council (GUSRC). The club is for all postgraduates and staff, offering a comfortable and friendly environment for postgrads and staff to interact with one another. Access is through using your GUID card with a swipe card system.

The club was named after Marion Gilchrist, the first female graduate of the University of Glasgow, and the first woman to obtain a medical degree in Scotland. In recognition of her accolade, the club hopes to bring together postgraduates from all schools and all backgrounds, creating a cross-college mix in which postgraduates can learn from one another.

The Gilchrist Postgraduate Club aims to be the place for all postgraduates to go, whether it is to socialise over a coffee or a beer, prepare with friends before a seminar or just to study.

The club has both social and study spaces, with a bar area offering a range of hot and cold food, as well as barista coffee and a wide section of alcoholic beverages, individual study booths and a seminar room. The seminar room, which is available for advance booking, gives postgraduates the use of the space for seminars, meetings, presentations, workshops, film screenings and much more. Capacity is approximately 60 in seminar layout. If you have an event you would like to host at the Gilchrist, then please get in touch.
