LSESU Bookable Spaces

Student, Club and Society bookings

Before making a booking please read the Room Booking Guidelines (as there are certain specifications in place for different rooms in the Students Union)

You must complete the Events Proposal Form and attach the Risk Assessment form to it. This will be shared with our Societies Coordinator and your request will be processed. 

You will hear back about your booking enquiry within 5-7 working days

Prices and dates will be given (you may need to meet with the Events Team if your event is complicated)

Once all requirements are met, we will send you across your Event Agreement Disclaimer

When this is agreed your event will be booked in

Please note that depending on the requirements of your event we may need to book in an Event Supervisor. For example all events that are Out of Hours (outside of Monday- Friday 9am-5.30pm) that are not basic rehearsals will require an Event Supervisor. The cost of this is £10 per hour, with a minimum charge of 4 hours. Please consider this before making your booking.

Capacity: 70

Booking availability: Monday–Friday, 6–10pm

The LSESU Weston Café (6th Floor) is open as a café service from 10am–5pm. Event bookings for this area are available once the café service has closed. When the café closes at 5pm, the café staff close, clean and clear the café area – therefore, event bookings begin at the earliest time of 6pm.

The Weston Café has its own furniture (tables and chairs). This cannot be removed from the café, although it can be moved around or re-arranged by the event organiser. If you move the furniture, please ensure that you put the furniture back to how it was when your event booking began. If furniture needs to be removed from the area, it can be moved into the area of the Bao Yang Meeting Room and the partition wall can be closed to hide the furniture. The Bao Yang Meeting Room can also be used as a cloakroom for your event.

You can have a drinks delivery service to the LSESU Weston Café, where you can pre-order your drinks and have this brought up for your event. The café has its own speakers – however, access to these speakers is located behind the bar, so if you would like to play music, please give the LSESU Events Team notice of this requirement and they can run a lead through the café shutters (but please be aware that using your own device to play music is at your own risk)

Please note that the 6th Floor Activities Studio is mostly booked out from 9am-5pm Monday - Friday and Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings for exercise classes If you are wanting to use the Activities Studio during this time, the Events Team will do their best to try and find a space for you.
