The Bar also has another name – The Winning Post – which, though not much used, is derived from the College’s association with the village of Cartmel in Cumbria known for its rather rustic race course. Cartmel Bar is relatively new, built around Barker House Farm, a building dating from the 17th century. The Bar has a split serving area with two individual bars, and adjoins the large Junior Common Room with a built-in DJ booth. It also boasts the BEST bar staff on campus! Cartmel College bar serves a wide range of teas and coffees as well as a stronger fare, with ambient music. The décor of the bar is along a traditional theme in keeping with the style of the listed farm building it has been built around.
The Junior Common Room, or JCR as it is more commonly called, is adjacent to the bar and is where all the pool tables, games machine and the dart board is housed. The JCR also contains sofas to relax on during the day, and a DJ booth and dance floor that can be used during socials.
The food court isn’t actually run by the college, but by the University’s Hospitality and Catering department. However it is located just outside of our bar so is very handy for Cartmel students. The Food Court is covered by a glass canopy so it can be used in all weathers. It serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so at any time of day, if you can’t be bothered to cook, you can go along and pick up something to eat.
These are located on the two floors of what was the old farmhouse and provide a working environment for those members of the college who do not have a room on campus, or a computer in their room. This area is also an excellent base for off-campus students to work and meet up. The computers have all the software you should need to do your work, as well as being on the University network, and there is a printer available for your use.
Deliveries of mail are sorted and placed in the pigeon holes outside the Porter’s Lodge. Parcels and envelopes thought to contain cheques or bankers cards are kept behind the counter in the Lodge and can be retrieved upon confirmation of your identity, usually by presenting your university Library Card.
There are telephones in every student room that are capable of both making and receiving calls. Internal calls around the university network are free; outgoing calls are charged on a pay-as-you-go basis using top-up cards that are available throughout the campus.
All campus rooms are equipped with a network point enabling students to get access to the university network using their own computers. You will be issued with a step-by-step guide to getting online and a network cable. When you open your web browser, you will be guided through the process of validating your computer so that you can connect to the Internet.
