Most of this is available through the International Student Office who can also offer assistance for students bringing their families with them or who are seeking work between their studies. There are also special events such as the weekly Global Café and the annual World Unite Festival. The Leeds University Union is a member of the National Union of Students and is available to support students during their time at Leeds as well as organising societies and volunteer opportunities. It operates the University Refectory in the main campus, which, on a night, is transformed to a 2000 person venue for live events with big names such as The Who and Bob Marley having performed there. There are also two bars and a café operated by the union and three nightclubs. Student societies number around 250 and include a newspaper, TV station and radio station run by students along with a large number of sports, with these having a particularly highly reputation.
