External Hire



Hire our venue


The Lower Deck is available for external hire on weekends. We can host birthday drinks, dinners, talks, presentations, and celebratory parties alike! We have a range of spaces available and can cater your event too. Download our External Bookings pack to see our layout and venue hire information. 
To book the venue, click here to email our Events Manager (m.j.rothwell@gre.ac.uk) and let them know when you would like your booking, and they will get in touch with you to get more details. 
The Lower Deck is part of Greenwich Students’ Union, and all money made in the venue goes back into the Union. By booking with us, you’re helping us provide services and activities for students at the University of Greenwich.
