Welcome to the Global Lounge


Join us in the brand new Global Lounge!

Our colourful and spacious (yet cosy) Lounge is on the first floor of Senate House, in the heart of campus, and is open to all at the University. Everyone is invited to use and enjoy the space – we encourage you to come and visit! Relax in one of our rocking chairs, help yourself to a free hot drink and meet new people in our funky and friendly home. You’ll always find a smiley person here, ready to welcome you; the Global Lounge team and/or Ambassadors will greet you and help you in any way they can, should you need it.

As well as a place to relax and meet others, the Global Lounge is host to a vast range of social events and cultural celebrations, running throughout the year. It brings students together from the UK, and all over the world, to socialise, celebrate global festivities, and share and learn about others’ cultures and traditions in a friendly and inclusive environment.

Don’t miss our Welcome events

In addition to year-round activities, the Global Lounge helps to integrate new arriving students into the city and University community through a range of fun and varied Welcome events, during the September and January periods.

Get to know Bristol and meet other students from all over the world, by getting involved in some of the friendly and exciting activities planned, including afternoon tea, treasure hunts around Bristol and campus tours!
