STRATHCLYDE University has revealed a sneak peak at their new student union. 

The association is housed in the learning and teaching building on Richmond Street.

It will open its doors to students tomorrow and replaces the much-loved John Street union which had housed the student association for more than 50 years.

Glasgow Times:

With it, there will be a whole new menu, pool table and firm student favourites of Tenents, Innis & Gunn and Drygate on draught.

Benn Rapson, Student Exec President at Strath Union, said: “Strath Union is where everything happens on campus, and we can’t wait for our students to experience the new union building in all its glory. It looks amazing and is brimming with things to see, do, eat, drink and more. We’ve been developing the spaces for five years now, and we know our students are going to love it.

Glasgow Times:

“The old building at John Street holds a special place in the hearts of many, which was evident from all of the amazing memories posted on social media when we announced its closure last month! Richmond Street has big shoes to fill, but we’re absolutely certain it’s up to the task. We’re so looking forward to opening the doors this weekend.

Glasgow Times:

“We’re also aware that COVID-19 hasn’t gone away, and we’ve put a number of measures in place to ensure we’re returning to campus responsibly. We want our students to get the best out of the new Union without having to worry, so we’ve taken all the necessary steps to ensure we’re going above and beyond current guidance.”
