Re-Open the union bar

Petition submitted by Alexander Marsh on 23rd Nov 2021

The Union should bring back the Union bar to make the student experience better post covid

Petition Breakdown

The Union should bring back and reopen the Union bar to improve the student experience of students in Portsmouth.


After Covid, a lot of students and young people were not able to socialise, go out, meet people or meet up with friends, now that Coronavirus restrictions have been lifted, the Union should reopen the Union bar in order to make sure that those young people can make the most of their time at University 


In many venues around Portsmouth, prices are rising as well as the general cost of living, and students have less money than ever - The Union should therefore reopen its own venue to provide an economical service to students and improve the student experience


This bar could be open every day of the week in order to give students a safe space to students while they study and could serve food and drink - or could open on certain days at certain times - for example, on wednesday evenings for club and society socials and during the weekends when students are able to unwind and take a break from studies.


In either way, the students want this and the Union should bring back the bar!
