Catering at Queen's Campus

The Colleges' Waterside Bar

The Waterside Events Bar is the venue for larger events including balls, formal dinners, student nights and other functions. With entertainment organised by Stephenson College JCR and Snow College JCR. With great light and music systems it’s also the best spot to show off your moves on the dance floor and if you’re lucky someone else will like them too!

“The Waterside is a very flexible space, one which we have heavily utilised. With a food servery, licensed bar and range of performing arts AV equipment, we can easily transform it to suit specific event needs. In addition, its daytime role as a canteen and vista over the River Tees make it a hub for many on the campus.
At the start of the year, our new students are introduced to the space laid out as an events bar. The existing students accompanying them asked, "what have they done to the canteen?" Later in the week we used the space for formal welcome dinners, then the new students asked,"what have they done to the club?"

“The Waterside Bar is a versatile venue used by the JCR for many different activities. As well as hosting our College Dining twice a week, the space is also transformed for our formal Locomotion Dinners and the Winter Gala. With fantastic views over the River Tees and the Infinity Bridge, the Waterside Bar is a lovely place to spend an evening, and is a valuable addition to student life at Stephenson.”

Tom Gates, Stephenson JCR President 15/16
