By night, the Students’ Union is the heart of social life on campus at Surrey. We run Rubix, the 1,550 capacity venue that is home to Flirt!, Citrus, as well as a whole bunch of club and society events.
The Students’ Union also operates The Basement, our venue for smaller or targeted nights out, and Hari’s Bar, our casual drinking hotspot.
Please note that all our venues are cashless.
For decades, the venue has hosted artists and DJs including Stormzy, Tinie Tempah, Wilkinson, Sigma, Kano, Charli XCX, EZ, Fredo, Krept and Konan, SClub 7, Pixie Lott, Chase and Status, Calvin Harris, Example, Pendulum, DJ Fresh, Scouting For Girls, Example, Basshunter, Netsky, Sigala, The Darkness, Yungen, Annie Mac, even Led Zeppelin and The Jam to name a few!
The venue has 4 floors, 4 bars (Bottle Bar, PJD’s upper/lower, Hari’s Bar and the VK Bar), an outdoor patio and even a balcony that oversees the dance floor! Rubix is also attached to The Basement via a stair hole, meaning we have two nightclubs in one that you can enjoy on our largest nights out!
On a typical week, we have 2 regular club nights: Citrus on Wednesdays, and Flirt! on Fridays, but throughout the week you’ll also see other amazing events such as the Funk Soul Disco, Mediterranean Night, Asian Nights and more… in the busiest periods the nightclub is sometimes open 7 days-a-week providing you the perfect place to let your hair loose and have some fun!
In addition to an amazing line-up of weekly club nights, Rubix also hosts daytime events which ensure the Union building is always bustling with activity. The ever-popular Thursday market sells fruit, vegetables, bread, and cakes, all at bargain prices, whilst on afternoons you’ll often find fitness sessions, and student led events such as the One World Exhibition and Refreshers Fair!

The Basement is our multipurpose underground space. Functioning as our smaller, more intimate club venue, the Basement has a maximum capacity of 250 people and gives a completely different vibe to Rubix!
During the day, the space is used as a restaurant for Youngs Kitchen. In the afternoon, BandSoc, CraftSoc, SVGS and other societies use the space for music, arts and creativity of any kind. Come 10pm, the space transforms into the intimately loved nightclub, The Basement! Artists from Sigma to Dapper Laughs have all drawn a crowd down in The Basement whilst student led nights such as Latin nights, Presha, Mediterranean Night, Asian Night, Remedy, Tessellate Indie Night and Frat Night, to name a few, have taken advantage of the intimacy to hold sensational events!
Hari’s Bar is the main social space in Rubix before the night gets started, or on days off from Citrus and Flirt. On our main nights, join us for drinks deals, or come along for events.
