Organise an event
We collaborate with student societies and individuals across the University to put on diverse and exciting events – open to all who study and work at the University to attend. Previously we’ve run events such as Day of the Dead, Thanksgiving, Virtual Iftar and an Indian Dance performance.
We welcome blog submissions about all things Global Lounge-related. If you’d like to write for us about an event you’ve attended or been involved in, we’d love to hear from you. We also welcome any ideas you may have for blog content. Get in touch with us if you’re interested, and visit the ‘Write for us’ page to find out more.
