GALLERY – Refurbished Guild of Students

GuildRefurb-7wThe newly refurbished Guild of Students opens in September following a major, multimillion pound investment. The frontage to University Walk has been updated with the addition of wooden panelling, new walkways and seating areas


A new more intimate Courtyard area has been created with a lowered roof above public seating space. A new bar and kitchen are in place and light streams in through the raised glass ceiling, allowing views out over Liverpool’s Metropolitan Cathedral

GuildRefurb-2wThe former Ken Saro-Wiwa bar has been completely transformed to create the new Sphinx Bar. Reclaimed wood provides function and decoration in this appealing contemporary space, that opens onto outside seating area

GuildRefurb-3wThe bar is available to book for parties and will also serve food

GuildRefurb-4wThe overhauled Mountford Hall – still Liverpool’s second largest live venue – benefits from £500,000 worth of new equipment. As well as hosting big name acts, it can be used by student societies

GuildRefurb-5wClear, consistent signage will help new – and current – students find their way around the transformed facility

GuildRefurb-6wThe Street joins University Walk with Mount Pleasant, providing pleasant seating and communal areas, as well as a coffee shop and bookable conference rooms
