The Venue is an amazing space full of potential that just doesn't get used at all. It would be good to get some sort of weekly evening event going such as a quiz or something just to give people some sort of incentive to get out of their rooms and do something. Get the bar going. Even if it's just soft drinks and coffee, it's a start! City Campus is such a depressing place to be at the minute if you can't drink because there's nothing to do in the city after 5pm. We need something to bring us all together outside of lecture times.


More social evening events at city campus

10:11pm on 20 Sep 18 As soon as lectures finish it's like the university is a ghost town. We have an amazing amenity in the Venue. Might as well make the most of it! Could open up jobs for students too with the need for more staff and security, and say a couple of quid entry to cover running costs.

1:15pm on 20 Sep 18 This is a great follow on from the Bar idea. Having a space with such events would be a lovely addition to our SU. I like the point about drinks too! Alcohol may be something to consider later, but why aren't there other drinks served there after 5pm? Cozy Campus Cafe springs to mind!

1:01pm on 20 Sep 18 Opening the venue to regular events with the student bar would be a great idea! There already is a bar in the Venue, just needs the staff and resources (+license) and we're sorted! :)
