Service & Event Status


Following the update to Government advice on the 16.03.20, surrounding the Coronavirus Pandemic, we have been working closely with the University of Liverpool in order to significantly change our approach to Guild activity and adhere to public health advice.

We have now taken the decision to close the Guild building and all of our outlets from 17.03.20 until further notice.

This is not a decision we have made lightly but we must continue to prioritise our staff and members’ health and wellbeing. If you have any queries please contact
