There are three different mechanisms for booking space in the Richmond Building: regular recurring bookings made in the summer, special event bookings supported by the Events Team and short notice/'ad hoc' bookings.
This information relates to bookings during term time only. To make a booking during the holidays, please contact the Student Services Team (email@example.com, 0117 331 8600).
You can view and delete bookings using the Room Booking System. Please use our Using the Online Room Booking System guidance to help you. Please be aware that the Anson Rooms are used for exams so will not be available for booking during exam periods.
Special events can be held in the Anson Rooms and AR2 Bar on most nights of the week and in our Theatre spaces by request. The Balloon Bar can accommodate smaller events. Special event requests can be made using this form.
Unbooked spaces in the Richmond Building can be requested no more than 2 weeks in advance by any student or student group, by contacting the Student Services Team on 0117 331 8600, or visiting our reception on the 3rd floor of the Richmond Building. Before speaking to us, please check the system for availability of rooms.
Please note that Ad-Hoc notice bookings will not have any technical support or additional equipment beyond what is already in the room.
Music practice rooms can be booked free of charge by any student. Contact the Student Services Team (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request the music room login details.
Bookings can be made up to 2 weeks in advance but not for the same day. If the room is free on the day, it can be used by requesting access from the porters. Suggested booking length is 2 hours.
Music Room 1 is a band room and Music Rooms 2 and 3 contain an upright piano. Please remember that the key card must be returned to the porters by the end of the booking slot ready for the next person.
These are our suggestions for external, or other spaces for your events.
University rooms can be booked through Learning Facilities Management after Welcome Week. Please note that University room bookings need at least 2 weeks' notice. Bookings for events with an entrance fee or that take place outside of a building's standard opening times will incur a charge.
