We have taken a decision based on the latest government guidelines and law regarding gatherings of more than 6 people, that the Union should postpone any face to face events at this point. This includes any Union ran events both onsite and off campus and any society led event. Sporting events that have been approved through our health and safety risk assessment procedure can continue at this point.
Any events that were planned to take place face to face will now happen online. We will continue to offer a wide range of events across our online platforms to allow you to meet fellow students and support you in building a community at Westminster. The Union takes the health and safety of its members seriously and understand that importance of abiding to government guidelines at this point to protect all Westminster Students and the wider community.

Will the Shop, Bar and Hideaway be open?
The Hideaway, Corner Shop and Undercroft bar will remain closed currently however we plan to review this on a weekly basis depending on the demand on campus and current capacity limits. We support the University in prioritizing teaching on campus therefore the commercial spaces will remain closed until increased capacity levels are granted on campus.
