The student union is on hand to offer a range of advice and support for students as well as organising extra-curricular activities, volunteering opportunities and even services such as entertainment venues. One of these is Maggieâ€™s the student union bar and cafÃ© where students can meet friends, have a drink or a meal and make use of the pool tables. It is also used as a venue for special events from parties to fundraising events and much more.
