The new, repurposed building, formerly the Colville Building, is ready to welcome students and provides a more accessible, student-friendly experience with brand new facilities. The innovative design brings the outside in, enabling students to socialise among trees and plants whatever the weather. Inside their Union, students can enjoy a pint and pizza on picnic tables laid across AstroTurf, oblivious to the wind and rain outdoors.

Students’ home away from home on campus, Strath Union boasts a food, drink and entertainment offering that far exceeds the traditional student union. Expect to see bao buns, flatbreads and noodle dishes as standard, as well as classics like pizza, fish and chips and burgers. Beer fans can sample a host of Scottish favourites from Tennent’s, Innis & Gunn and Drygate. The building is bursting with entertainment including pool, smart darts, Bluetooth headphone powered movie nights, live football and a programme of music in the works that will continue Strath Union’s tradition of booking huge names like Elton John, Calvin Harris and Frightened Rabbit.
