The Union has worked closely with university management and Norfolk Police to review the way it manages access to our licensed premises.
We pride ourselves on operating safe licensed premises. We are focusing on delivering high quality services and events for our members, staff, alumni and invited guests, and as a result have decided to limit entry to our licensed premises to only these groups, as is common in other student unions in the UK.
This change will have no impact on access to our gigs as tickets holders will be welcome to use the campus services.
We hope these changes will further contribute to the outstanding student experience at UEA and help maintain a safe campus with a greater sense of community.
Rosie Rawle, Union of UEA Students Communications Officer, said: “As a student charity, we are committed to ensuring the well-being of our members, and look forward to providing a safer and student-focused environment in our licensed premises.”

UEA Registrar and Secretary Brian Summers said: “We very much support the Student Union’s decision to review the access to its licensed premises. While we offer a number of events which welcome the public onto campus, we agree that the bars and club nights should focus on the student body and meeting their needs.”
