The Bristol SU Living Room opened in December 2018 on the fourth floor of Senate House. It brings a little piece of the SU to the heart of campus, giving you a space to relax, unwind and connect with other students.
It's not a study space and instead aims to combat isolation and facilitate positive wellbeing. There is a weekly programme of events if you fancy trying something new, lots of different games from foosball to ping pong, board games and books, space to relax and catch up with friends, or to sit, eat your lunch and take in the amazing panoramic views. Check out our FAQs for more.
The Bristol SU Living Room in Senate House is open 8am-10pm Monday-Friday during term time. We run a weekly programme of events, usually held between 12-2pm and all our events are open to everyone. They are totally opt-in and unobtrusive, so if you want to chill or meet a friend for lunch in the SU Living Room whilst an event is on, you’ll still be able to.
Following the success of the Bristol SU Living Room in Senate House, we've opened four Bristol SU Living Rooms in Halls of Residence. They're in Hiatt Baker, University Hall, Manor Hall and Clifton Hill House. All students are welcome in the Living Rooms in residencies and you don't have to live in that hall to use them. Watch this space for more information about how to get involved with these brand new spaces, which will give you a slice of home in your halls of residence.
Please note that the Bristol SU Living Room will be closed from Thursday 6th June - Monday 23rd September in line with the closure of Senate House. It is open as a pop-up space in the ground floor foyer of the Richmond Building from Monday 17th June. Opening times are 8am to 10pm, everyday.
