Our new coffee shop and shop opened in the Spring and are doing really well. Rector’s, our coffee shop, is a great space for students to meet up and unwind, with quality products and crafted coffees – it’s an exciting new direction for the Union. Rectors’ connects to ‘Your Shop’ next door, which sells a wide range of St Andrews branded clothing, stationary and confectionery. Every pound these new services raise goes back into supporting all of our student activities. Blackwells is also reopened and you can get to that from the side of the building, or from going through Rectors'.
Phase 2 saw the Main Bar converted into two spaces – Sandy’s, a traditional pub space in what was the games room space; and a Main Bar designed for use across both night and day. The physical bar has moved, and the raised section in the middle has been removed, so there is now a better flow across the bar.
Our commercial services are open for business - we encourage you to come in and try our shiny new bars, because all of the money gets recycled back into student activities and we have the same focus on giving students the best value and entertainment we can. Send any feedback you have to doserv@!
