Graham House is a beautiful building with a rich history.

The main space on the ground floor of Graham House is divided into two reception rooms: the Piano Lounge and the Billiards Room. Residents and guests are welcome to use both the piano and billiards table in these areas or simply to use the rooms as places to chat or enjoy some quiet time. There is a wood-burning fireplace in the Piano Lounge, which helps create an atmosphere for informal academic or social events during the winter months.

A coffee and tea service is available in the Piano Lounge from 10 am to 5 pm from Monday to Thursday (Fridays 10 am till noon). All residents, staff, and visitors are welcome to help themselves to coffee or tea.

The William C. Gibson Room is also on the ground floor, and is a quieter space for residents to read or study in. The Reading Room is reserved exclusively for College residents and staff, and is located next to the William C. Gibson Room.

The Great Hall, where members of the College and the wider university and local community meet up over dinner, is on the second floor of Graham House. At the entrance to the Great Hall is the College’s Servery, where Green College Dining Society staff serve meals on regular dinner nights (Sunday to Thursday) to residents, other members, guests and the public. Residents of the College also use the Servery and Great Hall on meal plan mornings (Monday to Friday). Outside of meal times, the Great Hall is an ideal location for residents to study and chat. Desk lamps and extension cords are available for loan in the cupboards along the south wall.

The Reception Rooms, William C. Gibson Room, and Great Hall can be booked as event venues for external bookings. Watch for signs in Graham House to indicate when spaces are reserved for external event bookings, or consult the weekly schedule posted in the Graham House foyer.
