Residential barbecues

Nearly every campus residence has a designated barbecue area that can be used by small groups of students from that residence.

The sites are close to residences and if the weather is good then these sites are popular. Please be advised that there are restrictions on the times such events can take place during the summer term. This helps to ensure that noise and disruption is minimised for the key exam period. Barbecues must therefore be finished and cleared away by 9pm.

Before starting your barbecue you need to complete an Outdoor Event Application Form and you also need to refer to the guidelines for barbecues on campus. These give you good advice and reminders about possible impacts of the event such as noise, safety, taking your rubbish away with you and respecting the environment.

There may be occasions where Campus Security may ask you to close an event and move. This request may be for operational reasons or due to unreasonable levels of disruption. We ask that you respect such requests and the impact your event may have on the local community. You need to be aware that if there is any damage or mess as a result of the barbecue then you may be required to pay the associated costs of reinstating the area. Antisocial behaviour will not be tolerated.

Please note there is not currently a site at Cryfield or Redfern. Westwood students should contact RLT members directly about arranging a barbecue.
