Hull University Students’ Union and J D Wetherspoon Plc are pleased to announce their new partnership.
From 31 January 2022, Sanctuary bar will be able to provide its student population with unparalleled offers and deals across a wide range of food and drinks.
Sanctuary will still be run and managed by Hull University Students’ Union but the new partnership will allow the Union to access the successful business model Wetherspoon has implemented across the country.
A Wetherspoon spokesperson said: “We have entered into a partnership with Hull University Students Union for the operation of the Sanctuary Bar and we look forward to working with them to making it a success.”
From traditional Breakfast for £3.95 to coffee for £0.99 with free refills available all day, Hull University Students’ Union is able to create a unique experience for students on campus unlike at any other Students Union. Students will have their very own ‘Spoons’ on campus or ‘Spoons at Sanc’ as it could be known.
Staff in the venue (Sanctuary) will continue to be employed and managed by HUSU, but will be given the same training and induction as Wetherspoon staff across the country.
Jeremy Hartley, Chief Finance Officer at the University of Hull with responsibility for Commercial Services, said: “We know that our students really value having all the facilities they need in one place. Our single-site campus provides our community with study spaces, food and drink establishments, gym and sports facilities and much more.
“This announcement further enhances that student experience, providing students with a quality, affordable food and events space right on their doorstep.
“Our campus is what makes the University of Hull the wonderful place it is, and this new partnership emphasises the importance of providing students with the very best experience possible.”
