The JCR Lounge

General

The Junior Common Room (JCR) Lounge is used in conjunction with the other JCR meeting facilties as a registration and refreshment space. It has large French windows which open out onto the JCR Cafe Garden and can usually also provide space for one or two exhibitor stands/poster boards.

As the Lounge is a communal area (particulalry in the evenings during vacations for our residential guests), it is not a formal, bookable space other than for refreshment purposes but adds a wonderful extra dimension to event catering. Use of the JCR Lounge is only available during vacations as it forms our student hub during term times.

 

The JCR Lounge measures 9.2m x 15.9m (approx) and features a ‘seating pit’ at one end.
