Regular Weekly Bookings

Each group that has been given regular weekly bookings should have a login to our online system where you can put bookings through according to the hours and rooms you have been allocated each year.

Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays are protected for regular activities in the Anson Rooms. All other spaces are protected from 17:00 on Monday and Tuesday, 13:00 on Wednesdays.

Please be aware that the Anson Rooms will be used for exams in May & June and so will not be available for bookings. Exact dates to be confirmed.


Short Term Room Bookings

Any spaces that are left un-booked, can be requested no more than two weeks in advance by any student group regardless of their allocation. Please contact the Student Services Team if you can see a room that you would like to use. Please note that any room booking that you make will not have any technical support, or additional equipment beyond what is already in the room you book.


Special events

Special events can be held in the Anson Rooms and AR2 Bar on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and Sundays.

Please use the online booking form to make your request which you can access here

When you place your booking, you will be asked for some basic information regarding your event. With this information we will check the technical requirements, let you know of the costs, any additional information that we require and, provided all is in order; Approve your booking. Depending upon the complexity of your event, you may be asked to meet with our Technical & Events Teams. If we feel that a request isn't appropriate, we will be in touch to provide details and further advice.

Please note, societies are only able to book technical equipment via the Special Events process. More information about charges for technical equipment and support can be obtained form the events team.
