Venues and Sites
The Students’ Association is one of the largest estates in the UK, Operating across four distinct venues. The new roles and structure has been established to reflect the split nature of the business.
The Students’ Association’s estate includes:
Teviot Row House
The oldest purpose-built student union in the world, Teviot Row House opened its doors in 1889, it is the main hub of student life on campus centrally. Housing six distinct bars, three catering outlets, a live music venue and meeting and events spaces, the venue play host to art exhibitions, sports screenings, quiz and band nights, balls, ceremonies and even weddings. The venue also support society room bookings through the events team.
The Pleasance recently underwent significant redevelopment, transforming it into a dynamic centre for student activities containing meeting areas, TV and radio production spaces, dance studios, and a multi-purpose performance space. A bar and catering offering exists on site, and Students’ Association events are programmed in the performance spaces throughout the year.
Home to the Students’ Association’s main administrative offices, a retail outlet, coffee shop, bar, catering offering, and two tenant companies, Potterrow has an attic nightclub which, each Saturday, enables the entire venue to transform into a 1,500 capacity club. We are seeking to enhance our late-night programme in this Venue.
King’s Buildings House
Providing Association facilities for some 10,000 science and engineering students based on the King’s Buildings Campus, King’s Building House has a gym, bar, catering and retail offering. The venue also houses badminton and squash courts and meeting facilities.
