    Is your union still open now? I live over from it and I only saw it busy during freshers week. Not a peep since.

    It's not really a "treck" though, is it? Jump off number 20, cross road, order drink. lol

    lol true but its not got anything worth making that extra journey when there are other places just as good closer by. Its a shame because the union was really good during freshers week but since then i've only been a few times and with a few exceptions (halloween was really good) it was pretty dead

    If you've only been a few times, how do you know?

    They have different events every night :yes: And tbh, the Union does grow on you. I couldn't stand it at first but after a few months I started to enjoy time spent there.

    Didn't they say they were closing the Union last year too? :confused:

    Yup. They convinced the uni to renew the lease at the last minute.

    I think part of the problem is that Sin opened right next door, which is cheaper. Also, they do those vodka slush puppies, which a lot of people seem to enjoy

    It is a shame about the union, but as someone else said, there's the Watering Hole for Hillhead, and the Bobbin for everyone else. It's just in the wrong place I think - a bar at King's would do well though, I think - would get societies meeting there, possibly if the Hub's downstairs bit was open 'til late and served alcohol that would be good

    Also, if the union was more like RGU's, with a couple of different bars and a dance bit as well (I don't think I'm imagining the last part ) I think that would make it more appealing as well.

    What have you got against vodka slush puppies :hmmm:

    They'll never close the Union. It'll be another last minute job.

    Hmmm... I wouldn't be so sure. There's very little cash available and it's running at a large loss. I think that the only way forward (and not ideal) will be in a collaboration with RGU.

    Not having a separate Union for such a historic uni is pretty unthinkable though. Go forth and propose your plans for the Hole, however pish they may be!

    The Hub is the union? All it needs is a licence to sell alcohol. :yep:

    I heard the actual union is closing in January/March.

    The hub is not the union. The hub does have a licence to sell alcohol.
