Having an Event? 
Come over to our place. 


Is our main entertainment venue within the Student Union and can hold up to 450 people. There's a bar and a space for DJ booth, as well as a full lighting rig and PA system. Zeros is often used for club nights, drama performances and large meetings - make sure you tell us what you require when completing a booking form to make sure we can provide everything you need. Lighting and Sound equipment requires our Events Crew to operate to make sure your event runs smoothly.



Libertys is a warm, chilled-out space that students can book after 4 pm. Furniture can be moved around to create the sort of space that your event requires. We have hosted everything from Wine & cheese nights to gaming tournaments to staff Christmas dinners in Libertys, so the space is very versatile without losing its homely atmosphere. When filling out the form, could you please let us know what equipment is needed so that we can sort it out in advance.
