All of our venues are cashless and will remain so in the 2021/22 academic year. We are aware that when starting university, some of you will not yet have a bank account and if you’re an international student, you may not have a UK bank account when you arrive in the UK to study. To facilitate this, all students will be able to top up their College Card account before arriving on campus, using Upay.
Whilst we strongly discourage bringing large amounts of cash onto campus, we understand that some of you have do not have any other means to pay for essential items during your first few weeks. Therefore, up until 31 October 2021, if you are unable to top up your Upay account with a credit or debit card, you can load up to £250 onto your Upay College Card account in cash at either the Hub or Kingswood reception.
As your Students' Union, we're keen to promote equality of opportunity for people with disabilities and to take the necessary steps to meet their requirements - that's why we've ensured that everything we do is accessible to as many of you as possible.
All of our venues are wheelchair accessible via shallow ramps; you can find out more about our venues and view our AccessAble pages by heading to our Accessibility page.
If you or someone you know requires access to special facilities, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and our friendly team will do their best to meet your needs.
