Powering up your SU

Building Reconfiguration

Over the summer we’ll be doing some major work to the main Students’ Union building – so we can provide a more seamless service for you, our members! We’ll be bringing all our touch points together into a single helpdesk upstairs, where you’ll be able to access literally every service we offer – from clubs and societies, to mini buses, to support for course reps.

Rialto > Central Helpdesk

Rialto will become our new central helpdesk that will provide you with access to all of our services. Previously clubs, societies, expense claims, disciplinarians, mini-bus booking, NUS Extra sales and more have all been located at multiple points around the building. This meant that students were often being bounced around the Students' Union when they had queries and this new single point of contact is aimed at fixing that. Now, all your services are available in one location with our back office function moved out of the way but still easily accessible for when you need support.

Reception > Additional Seating

The current reception will be turned into a seating area to replace Rialto with all the services currently offered from here relocated to the new single helpdesk upstairs in Rialto. This space will be ideal as a break out study space or just meeting friends with lots of plug sockets for you to charge your mobile devices around the entire area.
