Clarbour Room

Clarbour v2017

The Clarbour Room can be used by all staff and students in Goodricke College, which is governed by the College Council.  This room was renamed to honour the dedication and commitment shown by Dr Jane Clarbour over the many years she has been associated with Goodricke.  Jane left the post of Head of College in July, 2015 after 11 years at the helm.

Like the Junior Common Room, the Clarbour Room has an enviable list of facilities at members' disposal, and it is an excellent meeting point for students and staff and a place to relax and unwind. The College itself tends to hold regular events in this room, e.g. food events. Unlike the JCR this room cannot be booked in advance.

What's available

  • Comfy sofas and chairs
  • Coffee tables
  • Slouch style bean bags
  • Widescreen TV and projector

The networked printer is available in the nucleus for you to use. You can set work to print from elsewhere (holding it in 'store') and when you reach nucleus, you can retrieve your work.
