17th May 2021

As the UK moves to step 3 of the roadmap out of lockdown, the BG Futures team at Bishop Grosseteste University are delighted to announce that the Business & Enterprise Centre will reopen its doors on Monday 17 May.

As part of the re-opening the Centre's Student Enterprise room will be available to book for student-led groups to use. Bookings can be made for a University society, Enactus group or an individual quiet space for students to work on their enterprising idea, business start-up or volunteering position.

The facilities are open to view to all students when they are next on campus.

Bookings can be made by emailing jennifer.jenkins@bishopg.ac.uk a few days in advance. The room will normally be available Monday – Friday between 9am – 4.30pm

Sarah Moseley, Enterprise Development Manager at BG Futures, discussed the team's motivation for opening up the facilities and what benefit they hoped students could expect:

"The opening of the Business and Enterprise Centre and the return to on campus teaching has allowed us to consider how our facilities can be utilised to enrich the student journey. Access to the Enterprise room provides the perfect opportunity for small groups of students to work collaboratively, or individually in a safe space. Our centre has not been the same without the hubbub of tenants and students. Myself and the rest of the team cannot wait to welcome people back in person."

Erin Bell, Bishop Grosseteste Students' Union President, shared her excitement at the opportunities on offer to the student community:

"Having the Enterprise room available to students is a great opportunity for them to have somewhere they can safely and privately meet and can act as a nice introduction to the BG Futures team and give insight into the amazing support they can provide students throughout and after their time as students. It’s amazing that our campus can facilitate such a variety of social and study spaces for our many students’ individual needs, and I think making this space available will add to the collaborative and communal nature of BGU.
