From January 2022 RGU:Union will be moving from our current home on Union Way to a new base in the Georgina Scott Sutherland Centre in Aberdeen Business School.
This new location will allow us to develop new facilities and many new opportunities for all RGU students, with more space for you all to collaborate, rooms for clubs and societies to meet, and space for you to put your feet up and relax between lectures.
The Union spaces will span 3 floors of the Georgina Scott Sutherland Centre, including collaborative workspaces on level three where you can carry out group projects, work on presentations or meet with your classmates. We will also be introducing social areas on level four for you to catch-up with friends and relax between lectures - look out for pool tables, games consoles, board games, plus areas on campus that play music and show TV, movies or sport, as well as space to host or attend special events taking place throughout the day.
You've told us that you want somewhere comfy and relaxed to socialise on campus so our team, including Student Presidents from last year and this year, have been working really hard behind the scenes alongside Senior Management at the University to make this happen, and we could not be more delighted to start sharing the first steps of this phased project with you!
Our societies, groups, networks and sports clubs will be able to use these bookable spaces to meet and host socials or fundraisers too, meaning there has never been a better time to join one! Find out how to join a society or sport club on our website.
Our team will also be based within the new Union space, so you will be able to find us there, including your Student Presidents! If you have not been to the Georgina Scott Sutherland Centre, you can find it in Aberdeen Business School, opposite the Costa and Subway outlets.
We have some really exciting plans for the new space and can't wait to see it continue to develop into a space for all students at RGU to enjoy. But as always, we want to hear from you! What do you think? If you have any ideas get in touch with Laila, our President (Communication and Democracy).
