The Students Union (SU) Lounge is fully run and owned by students and is the ideal place to catch up with friends. This is your home-from-home, for studying, grabbing a coffee and a snack, playing Xbox or Playstation, or just hanging out between classes.
The Mezz is a social space that stays open after the SU Lounge has closed.
