Piano in the Common Room

The Common Room is home to the college’s Yamaha grand piano which is used for recitals and special events. The piano is available for all members of the GTC community to use. The Common Room is a space that is used by our whole community for a variety of purposes and we ask that you are mindful of practicing times. We suggest that evenings are usually a good time to choose and when the Common Room is not booked.

The piano is kept locked and covered, with access via keys at the Lodge. Please feel free to call ahead to the Lodge to check if the room is free before you travel. If you have any queries please feel free to email Becca, bursar.pa@gtc.ox.ac.uk, with any queries.

Putting on a live music event

Initiatives that bring members of our community together are welcomed however we cannot support every request.
