The University of Surrey Students' Union has a vibrant scene catering for a diverse range of tastes. Rubix, our 1,550 capacity nightclub hosts regular club nights during term time, complimented by The Basement's uniquely enclosed space providing a different offering downstairs. Students are also encouraged to utilise the spaces for their own nights too, giving you even greater variety with student ran events including Latin nights, Presha, Mediterranean Nights, Asian Nights, Remedy, Tessellate Indie Night, Frat Nights and more!

Not all events in the Students' Union revolve around partying though- events throughout the year are extremely diverse due to the wide variety of clubs/societies and cultures at the University of Surrey! Here's a list of some of the events that take place during the academic year :
Freshers Fayre: Come down to PATS field in Freshers Week, and explore the 180+ clubs, societies, departments and external companies (such as Domino's and McDonalds!) and learn about the amazing opportunities that your University Life has to offer (and also grab a massive bag of freebies of course!)
Gradsport - Alumni sports members face the current crop of university students in their respective sports to see if the club legends have what it take to win against the current club members!
End Of Year Show- What's a better way to celebrate the end of your exam season, than 4 days of giant parties in Rubix!? Acts such as Chase and Status, Sub Focus and Krept & Konan have performed before.
Gradball - A massive black-tie event that takes place from 6pm to 6am every year, to be one last party before everyone leaves for the summer (or to celebrate graduation)! Usually begins with a funfair and entertainment on PATs field, before moving over to Rubix to party until 6am... those who last the entire night are rewarded with a free breakfast at Hillside.
Strictly Come Surrey- Every year, 12 people from the University of Surrey are nominated by their peers to battle on the dancefloor in a massive event held in University Hall. Keeeeeeep dancing!
Varsity- Every year we battle Royal Holloway in Varsity- sports clubs from both universities send teams of students to play their sports against eachother. The venue alternates every year between Surrey Sports Park and Royal Holloways sporting grounds, but it doesn't matter as Surrey is currently on a 10 year winning streak for Varsity! #HammeringHolloway #UpTheStags
One World Showcase and Exhibition- Held every year over at GLive, One World Showcase is where many different societies create a performance relating to their culture/activity, culminating in a fantastic spectacular showcase ranging from Latin dancing to Gospel Choirs. One World Exhibition is held in Rubix during the afternoon, where cultural societies run stalls
Little top tip:
Tickets for each weeks Citrus and Flirt! go on sale at 8am on the Monday morning of the week of the event... so make sure to set those 7:59am alarms so you don't miss out!
