2022 SU General Election Full Supplement

SU presents proposal for redesigned Den

By Chris Adams, April 2 2015 —

Students’ Legislative Council (SLC) passed the first reading of a $483,901 extra-budgetary expenditure that will fund the Den’s renovation over the summer.

According to the briefing provided to SLC, “the Den must be up-to-date to operate on an even playing field with its competitors.”

The budget for the renovation comes in at $416,901. An additional $67,000 may be added if SLC decides to re-do the entire floor with vinyl plank flooring.

The Den’s layout will remain as is, leaving the bar, dance floor and Red Room where you remember them.

But the tables, chairs, lighting and colour are all changing. Done in a Chicago style, the brick in the Den will be painted grey, which the architects say will tie the bar together and make it feel larger than it is. Added lighting will brighten the room, while beerhall-style seating will make space for more patrons.
