The Forum Hertfordshire

Neon lights at the nightclub

 

A world-class entertainment venue and your on-campus bar & nightclub.

 

The Forum Hertfordshire is located on College Lane and brings a real buzz to campus week in, week out. Having recently undergone a huge redevelopment, we're excited to open the doors again from Welcome Week onwards! The first floor offers an informal bar, Seventy7, where students can sit back and catch up with their friends. The second floor is home to our brand new nightclub, The Loft. There will be many occasions where the whole space will combine to form a larger venue for bigger events! Your student venue gives you the chance to socialise with friends and let your hair down in a safe space.

 

What can you expect at The Forum Hertfordshire? The biggest student night here at Herts, BIG Wednesdays brings you a different theme every week and a range of music across the venue. Come along for the best deals, guest DJs, and loads of giveaways. The perfect spot for sports clubs to celebrate their Wednesday wins! Back again this year, Friday Lights brings the venue alive with your favourite Urban, Grime, Hip Hop & Dancehall tracks. New for 2022 is Reloaded, taking you back to the 80s, 90s and 00s! In addition, you can expect a range of feature events, including Charged Up with Bobbie Jay Events, Bhangra & Bollywood Nights and Boozy Bingo.

Safety Measures

The measures we have put in place can be found below:

  • 1. Full risk assessment of all activity and fire evacuation strategy for the venue.
  • 2. Working with SIA security guards that are trained and experienced in operating student venues. We work closely with our security to ensure they are providing you with effective protection and we will challenge and deal with any behaviours drawn to our attention.  We are also minimising the use of any student guards in the venue.
  • 3. Full CCTV coverage of the venue is in place on all floors and stairs wells, we will also be deploying some body-worn cameras to assist in our efforts to keep you safe.
  • 4. We are launching a new training programme for our staff and security – that includes the Ask for Angela scheme and drug awareness to ensure staff and security are fully prepared for their roles.
  • 5. We provide medical support on nights out by a trained paramedic and on smaller nights by first aid trained staff.
  • 6. We are limiting the number of guests in the venue to ensure the venue is for students.

 

Spiking: No one should be subject to having something put in their drink if they haven’t asked for it. It is never ok. If you intend on spiking people, you are not welcome in our venue and shouldn’t be part of this brilliant student community. If you are caught, our venue policy is clear. You will receive a lifetime ban and you will be reported to the University and the Police.
