Late Night, Do It Right 

Late Night Do It Right is all about getting our students to have unforgettable (and safe) nights out, we’re there to help ensure that you remember them for all the right reasons. You can get free water from all of The Students’ Union bars and we have zero tolerance of sexual harassment. Throughout the Welcome period, the campaign was present across several Welcome Events. The Students’ Union staff and Welcome Week Reps provided students on nights out with hot drinks, toast, sweets, condoms and phone charging points. We even provided a chill out zone at some events where students could come and relax for a few moments before returning to the party.

Key Highlights

  • Giving out free food and water on a night out
  • Providing phone charging points and taxi numbers to make sure people got home safe
  • Chill out zones
  • Spreading awareness and engaging in conversation about sensible drinking

Bring Your Own Bowl (BYOB)

This is a scheme aimed at the students residing in UWE managed accommodation to provide them with a free meal and provide a social opportunity that is inclusive and enjoyable. The event only requires students to turn up with a bowl and they get fed for free.

This is an event aimed at student wellbeing and encouraging them to socialise responsibly and to conscientiously consider their health, safety and how they might be impacting others.
