Campus Creators

We’re asking for ‘campus creators’ to step forward and propose an activity or event that they would like to see take place on campus for 2021/2022! Whatever it is, if it’s possible, we’ll help make it happen!

As part of our Campus Engagement Project, GSU will help to support the logistics, funding and promo – we’d just ask you to be the driving force!

If you’ve got an idea, complete the form below, and we’ll be in touch with you as soon as possible!

Candy Shack

We've created a bar in The Dome, which is the social hub of campus.
