Infusion Restaurant is a large, functional space and often serves up to 1000 students in a sitting. Fusion regularly plays host to large conferences and gatherings, from silver service banquets and large scale meetings, to conventions and student focus groups. This dynamic space can be adapted to suit most functions. Technical equipment such as microphone and PA systems, lighting displays and large screen projection equipment can be provided.

Every weekend Infusion becomes a nightclub for the students, accommodating up to 1200 partying students. The large PA rig, sound and lighting equipment is suitable for DJs and performers and the large fixed stage has seen the likes of Radio One DJ Scott Mills perform for students during Freshers week.

The Melt is a two storey building with glass walls, allowing beautiful views of the Vale. Great for relaxing, studying or simply to enjoy a coffee. Upstairs the Melt provides a range of hot and cold drinks and snacks throughout the day and is a popular alternative to dining in Infusion.

Like Infusion, the Melt also hosts meetings and conferences of various types, and the large open space of the lower storey is ideal for sit down meals. The Melt bar hosts weekly club nights for the students.
