Freshers' Week

Strathclyde students who are under 18 can access the Union building during Freshers' Week at any time.

Wristbands will be given to those over 18 to allow bar staff and security to easily identify anyone under 18 and ensure anyone without a wristband is not served alcohol. Stewards will be in the bar and at the front entrance providing wristbands at the start of evening events.

Strathclyde students can sign up to 4 people into the building, this includes students from other Glasgow unis or colleges and non-students. Guests signed in must be over 18.

Students aged 18 or over from other unis or colleges are welcome, and can also sign 1 guest into the building. However, during busy periods when close to capacity Strathclyde students will have priority for entry.
