What is the Research Club?

The Research Club is a cosy social club for mature and postgraduate students,
and short-term study international students. Providing a large range of bar and
catering services in a comfortable and relaxed environment throughout daytime
and evening, including wireless internet access, the club’s atmosphere is
friendly and cosmopolitan. The building was the residence of former University
Principal, Sir Hector Hetherington, and retains most of the original features,
giving the club a homely feel. Membership is £10 per year (increasing to £12
in October). Members get their own key to the front door, and membership
entitles you to free or reduced entry to most DJ and club nights, as well as
many other events.

What is a typical day like?

Come in from 9am, for tea or coffee and a croissant – or choose something
more filling from the breakfast menu. Take one of the many papers from the
rack (including international and foreign language papers). Have your tea or
coffee topped up for free as many times as you like, while chatting to other
morning customers, before going to class.

When you return at lunch time the specials board offers a tasty soup, vegetarian
dish and meat or fish dish, freshly made every day, in addition to the extensive
regular menu, which is also cooked to order.

Afternoons are for finding a quiet place to plug in your laptop and study or
surf the net, perhaps with a large slice of chocolate cake from the bar, or meet
friends for a glass of wine or a beer, a game of pool or to play one of the many
board games held in the main bar.

By 5pm the club gets busy again with members coming in for dinner or a
snack and a drink to unwind. Thursday’s curry night is especially popular, with a
different vegetarian & meat or fish curry every week for £4, or £5 with a bottle
of the featured beer. The evening passes by in a lively and convivial atmosphere.
The main bar is full of animated discussion, and the first floor bar has live music
or DJs most weekends.

What other activities are available?

The club runs a quiz every Monday evening, and a variety of other events on

the

different evenings throughout the year. In October look out for the vintage
second hand clothes sale, talks and tastings from local delis and wine suppliers
and lively DJ and clubbing nights throughout the year. Members of the club
come from all over the world, so to celebrate this diversity, the club hold events
on many international days such as Bastille Day, German Reunification Day, and
Mexican Independence Day with themed food, drinks and music.

The club has a pool table and study room on the top floor, with a pool
competition run in October, as well as a league throughout the year. The club
runs a suggestion slip system which enables members to propose ideas for
events, comment on any aspect of services and facilities, or request items which
the club does not stock.

How do you get involved?

Joining the club’s committee of management is an excellent way of being
involved in running the club and meeting other club members. The committee
meets regularly to discuss events and services, and committee members help
out at club events. If you would like to become more involved in running the
club, please leave your details with a member of staff.

The Research Club is
a truly unique place
on campus: relaxed
days and lively
nights characterise
this friendly and
exclusive club.

GUSA & the SRS

Sport and Recreation is delivered through a partnership between the Sport
and Recreation Service (SRS) and the Glasgow University Sports Association
(GUSA). The SRS is a service department within the University, while GUSA is
an independent and representative student organisation. The fundamental aim
of the partnership is to get as many students as possible enjoying quality sport
and exercise and making it part of their lifestyle while at university.

Participating in sport and recreation while at university provides some great
benefits and opportunities. You can try lots of new activities or improve existing
skills as well as your general health and wellbeing. There are opportunities to
get involved with clubs and represent the university. The partnership provides
students with welcoming facilities where you can relax and socialise, offering
options to get great advice on exercise and physical activity, particularly if you
are unsure or think that exercise isn't for you. Above all it ensures a great way
to take time out, reduce stress and feel fantastic. Sport and recreation also
provides chances to get involved in club management or the student sports
council – a great way to get involved, gain experience, and make a difference.

Getting involved in sport while at university is one of the most worthwhile
things that you can do during your studies. There are so many opportunities
available to you through Sport and Recreation that you will not have again
so we strongly recommend you consider getting involved. Students who
participate in Sport and Recreation are less likely to drop out of university – but
don’t take our word for it, come and try it out for yourself!
