The Best Student Life. Bristol SU

Venue Hire

Situated in one of the most vibrant cities and best known universities in the UK, Bristol Students’ Union offers a wide range of affordable spaces for all kinds of events.

In 2015, the Richmond Building reopened after a £30 million revamp and can now offer a large, adaptable conference space in the Anson Rooms, two theatres, exhibition spaces, two bars and a variety of meeting and activity rooms. It is a unique facility within the city offering a wide range of spaces to meet the needs of any event.

At evenings and weekends during term time our spaces are used for a vast array of student activities: everything from high-profile gigs and student theatre to martial arts training. Outside of these times a range of event, performance and rehearsal spaces are available for hire.

This website takes you through some of the key spaces Bristol Students’ Union can offer, highlighting some of the ways our spaces are used, but we understand that every event is unique! We give a personalised and bespoke service for each of our clients, so if you can’t see your event type listed here, it doesn’t mean we can’t do it! Just get in touch and we can make it happen.
