This petition has reached the required number of backers to be reviewed at the next meeting.

How Will This Idea Benefit Students?

By Re-opening the Student Union bar, Our campaign has three main objectives which would benefit students:

1. Community - we would like to recreate a sense of community for students within the Union, and encourage students to connect throughout the university through a students only area. 

2. Safe Space - By bringing back the student union bar, we would be encouraging a safe space for students to drink, relax and enjoy a night out. We understand that after the fears surrounding COVID-19 and spiking in clubs, students would prefer a student only area on nights out.

3. Get students back into the SU - By reopening the student bar, we would be able to encourage more students into the Union itself, and therefore encourage more active participation in the Student Union running, events and societies. 

How Can The Union Achieve This?

The Student Union can support us in our campaign by encouraging societies to uptake the campaign and share the petition link. In addition, we would like to take part in Student Union events in the upcoming future to further gather support for our campaign, working in collaboration with the Union itself, and other groups and organisations.
