Every other week starting Thursday 12th January 2023 12:30-13:30


Looking to meet like-minded people? Want somewhere to come and eat a free lunch and have a chat? You’ve come to the right place!

These bi-weekly meet-ups provide a friendly, welcoming space for anyone of any age to get together. There’re no criteria to attend – whether you’re a mature student, parent, carer or just looking to make a new friend, everyone’s welcome! We know that life can get busy when you have other commitments outside of Uni, so feel free to drop in for as long or as little as you like.

Bring a friend or go solo and get to know new students from other courses. It runs from 12:30 - 13:30 but stay as long as you like.

We can guarantee free hot drinks, a free lunch* and friendly chats and a spot on the sofa ready and waiting for you!

We are committed to sustainability so please bring your reusable hot drinks cup there are no single use cups available.


*Get yourself settled in the reserved area upstairs then come to reception and we will give you a voucher for a meal deal from The Students' Unions shop.
