We are taking extra measures to ensure the safety of our guests and our staff these include:
On our high-capacity events we will also be doing COVID checks. SCORE and KLASS are included within this. Please keep an eye on the events listing on the website to see if the event requires a COVID check.
You will be asked to show a valid NHS COVID Pass which you can get for the following reasons:
If you don't have the NHS App you can show proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test via text message. Please do not to come to our venue if you have Covid symptoms or feel you may have been exposed to infection.
We, The SU, are committed to the fight against the climate crisis. As an organisation we are looking at everything we do and how we can make changes to reduce our own carbon emissions.
There’s still lots more to be done. Here are the changes we are working towards:
Reducing emissions through our menu
Everything we eat has an impact on the environment and some foods have a greater impact than others. That’s why we are working to give you more foods with lower carbon emissions including more Vegetarian and Vegan options.
Improved dietary requirements
By improving our vegan options, we will offer more dairy free options. We are also working on how to provide gluten free alternatives in a safe way from our kitchen.
We are working with the University to provided cardboard bins to dispose of pizza boxes. We are also working towards effective composting of the Vegware takeaway packaging. Vegware lets off less harmful toxins than regular waste when put in landfill, but when composted can help to nourish British soil, support healthy plant growth and reduce the risk of flooding.
No more paper tickets
We are currently working with our ticket provider for club nights such as Score and Klass to implement ticketless entry to our events and club nights. This will reduce the amount of paper printing we do each year. You may see some ticketless events this year as we try out our new systems.
Cold drink cups
We are working to find a replacement for the Starbucks Cold Drink cups for the iced coffees which are particularly popular in the summer.
We are joining up our food and drink suppliers, where possible, to ensure deliveries make one trip to campus for all outlets. This will reduce the emissions of our suppliers who might have to make repeat or additional trips.
The venue has an event control room which looks over the night club when operating, with 19 CCTV cameras.
At both the Plug & Tub you can ask for ‘Spikeys’ free of charge. Spikeys are an anti-spiking product which fits tightly in bottles, blocking the entrance from being open to having additional substances added! Just ask any staff member when ordering your drink.
We also now have StopTopps, these are versatile drink protectors. They are single-use foils that can be put over a drink, and are suitable for any drinking vessel, including cans, bottles, and glasses. Made from small sheets of aluminium foil, through which you can insert a straw for easy drinking. This makes it difficult for anything to be added to your drink without your knowledge.
All bar and security staff are trained on drink spiking awareness as well as on the use of our SU Safe Taxi Scheme, which gives you a safe transport option home when needed.
Security have increased frequency of on-the-door searching and additional training will be incorporated into the nightly bar briefing for all staff.
The Student Centre has a safe area for students to use if they feel unwell and need to rest during a night out. Please contact the nearest member of staff if you feel unwell for directions.
Everybody reacts differently to any situation. You shouldn’t feel under any pressure to respond in a particular way.
