Use it or Lose it
what does this mean for The Hub?
There are two options and your actions will dictate what we do!
- Keep the bar open (as is) or
- Keep the venue open as a social space and ONLY open the bar for Student Led events such as the MT Fundraising event.
In simple terms … Currently The HUB does not make enough money to stay open. Since the start of term The HUB has made a loss of around £7000.
The HUB has, for many years, run at a loss however the SU can no longer sustain this financially. To break even The HUB needs to take £50 per hour, currently it is only taking £18.02. £50 covers the cost of the product, VAT, Cleaning materials/bar supplies etc, Tills, Licensing and Staff costs.
What does this all mean? … You either need to use The Hub and spend money behind the bar OR we will have to close the bar and only open the venue.
