We want to make sure new and returning students are given a big welcome (or welcome back!) to uni this September, and ensure campus is a safe environment for everyone.

Starting from this Saturday 01 February, The Bridge will be open 11.30–17.00 on Saturdays instead of the usual 11.30–23:00. This is to provide a consistent set of operating hours for general use of The Bridge each day.
This will also allow The Bridge to operate additional priority hours for affiliated groups who wish to book the space out for functions and events. Clubs and societies who may have previously missed out on utilising this space will now have an additional day’s opportunity every week to book it.
