Additional seats can be added, but please make a note of this when completing your booking.
 

Union Way Promo Space

Use the space in front of the Union office to host a promotional stand for your society, sports club or student group. We'll set you up with a table and some chairs, perfect for increasing your sign-ups, promoting your events, and hosting fundraisers such as bake sales. This is the main walkway between Aberdeen Business School and the other buildings on campus, so there are always lots of students passing through.
 


The Terrace

If you're looking for an informal space to host a small group meeting, book one of our tables on The Terrace with comfy couches and background music. This is the student social space on Union Way, so bookings do not guarantee exclusive use of the entire area, but spaces can be reserved for groups of up to 10 people.
 

Other Spaces On Campus

We also look after all student bookings on campus (with the exception of Gray's School of Art and the ABS Learning Centre), so if you would like to use a lecture theatre, seminar room, or any other space across the Sir Ian Wood Building, Health & Social Care Building, Aberdeen Business School or Garthdee House Annexe, fill in a booking request form and we will help you out with this.
 


City Centre Spaces

If you are looking to host an event or fundraiser closer to the city centre, we have links with a number of bars, nightclubs, community centres and other venues who can provide space for meetings and events of almost any size. Get in touch by emailing bookings@rguunion.co.uk to discuss this with our team, or drop into the Union office on Union Way.
