Easter is coming to the Union, but don't worry, we are still here for you over the next few weeks, although we may have tweaked a few of our opening hours.

Please note all outlets and services in the Union will be closed from 12.30pm on Thursday 14 April until Wednesday 19 April when we will reopen from 8am as normal.

On the lead up to Thursday 13 April in the afternoon, some of our outlets will be open at different times. If you are on campus and fancy popping in for a cheery pint in Old Bar or a quick meal deal from Essentials, have a check below to find out any changes to normal opening hour. 

Whether you are home or here for Easter, have a good one!

What support is available when LUU is shut?

Student Advice will be closed from Thursday 13 at 12:30 midday and reopen at 9:30am on Wednesday 19 with the other services. 

Just because we're closed for parts of the period, doesn't mean you have to be left alone. These services can help you in instances of abuse, crime and financial and housing issues. You are not alone over the Easter break, so don’t suffer alone if an issue arises.
