Gallery – Refurbished Guild of Students

Guild of Students

The newly refurbished Guild of Students is set to open its doors in September following a major, multimillion pound investment.

The new Guild, which is the largest student union building in the UK,  includes new rooms for activities, a cinema room, a new-look Stanley Theatre and an improved performance space in Mountford Hall, with a state-of-the-art sound and light system.

It has been redeveloped as part of a £600 million investment to develop the academic, social and residential facilities at the University over a 10-year period.

Picture above: The frontage to University Walk has been updated with the addition of wooden panelling, new walkways and seating areas.
