New Graduate Lounge at Guy’s

The Graduate School is pleased to announce that the Graduate Lounge at Guy’s is to be relocated to a more central site at Guy’s and refurbished. While you have been telling us you value the space to make a coffee, have a chat or do some quiet work we have taken on board your comments that the existing Lounge in the Hodgkin Building isn’t easy to find or in a very convenient location.

So, the Lounge is to be moved to Room 4.20 in Shepherd’s House and refurbished. This will put it in closer proximity to the catering facilities in New Hunt’s House (and the Farmers’ Market foodstalls). There will be kitchen facilities (sink, fridge, kettle, microwave), comfortable seating, wi-fi for those using their own laptops, a printer and 5 networked PCs.

There will also be secure lockers that can be used to store your belongings for the day while you are on campus, something you have asked for.

When combined with the existing postgraduate-only computing workroom on the 3rd floor of Henrietta Raphael (HR3.12) nearby, we will have a Postgraduate Hub at Guy’s for the first time. The 3rd floor room also has an area for informal meetings or working groups.

The work to create this exciting new facility will unfortunately necessitate temporary closure of the existing lounge but it is anticipated that the new Graduate Lounge will open in the week commencing 9th February.

If you have any suggestions for further enhancements to the Graduate Lounges please let us know by emailing graduateschool@kcl.ac.uk
