Statement on the future of the Bongo Club

Official University statement on efforts to relocate the Bongo Club.

The University has looked at all of the available options within its properties across the city but has been unable to find a suitable new location for the Bongo Club.

The Old Kirk was considered but cannot be used because it forms part of the University’s long-term development plans for its Holyrood estate, which includes providing new living accommodation for up to 1000 postgraduate students and a range of seminar spaces that will be used by students and the local community.

In its efforts to assist the Bongo Club find a new home the University has put it in touch with a specialist commercial property agent, arranged an early viewing of a potential alternative venue prior to the property being put on the open market, and held several meetings with its representatives.
