Drop-Ins and Showcase Events

Bookings for the 2014/15 academic year are now open.

A drop-in or showcase allows you  to raise your profile and meet potential employees informally by holding your event in or around our busy students services buildings. The relaxed environment lends itself to promoting your organisation to those passing by, as well as those who have already undertaken research and are eager to speak in more depth about your opportunities. These events can be arranged as a one off activity or alternatively, you may wish to schedule in other sessions as part of your visit.

They are offered throughout the academic year, Monday – Friday and can take place anytime between 9am-5pm. We do, however, recommend that you cover the lunch period to maximise student attendance and ask that your event is booked for a minimum two hours. 

About Drop-Ins

Located on the Streatham campus within the Forum building, drop-ins consist of a table and two chairs, an electrical point, wifi and space for a banner stand.

About Showcase events

Make an impact by running a high profile showcase event on our Streatham campus.  With indoor and outdoor spaces suitable for anything from smoothie giveaways to double decker buses, this event type allows you to get creative and deliver a larger, more visual drop in.

The Venues

Drop-in and indoor showcase events are located within the Forum building, in an area known as ‘The Street’. Click here to view a photo of this space. 

Outdoor showcase events can be held on our North Piazza or Great Hall Piazza, depending on requirements. The North Piazza is immediately outside the main Forum entrance whilst the Great Hall Piazza is adjacent to the Forum building. The outdoor venues are flexible and can accommodate a range of activities from marquees to vehicles (subject to permission).

The Forum is located at the heart of the campus making it an ideal location for high profile activity. It houses the main library, supermarket,  bank, coffee shop, Career Zone, seminar rooms, and 400 seater auditorium. A busy space, it attracts approximately 6000 visitors each day, with students of any discipline passing through.


Drop-ins and showcases are marketed to students via email and listed on the ‘My Careers Zone’ website. In addition it may also be possible to promote via our Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Where appropriate, the events will also be included in College-based marketing material.


Drop-ins start from £150+VAT

Showcase events start from £250+VAT for indoor events and from £300+VAT for outdoor. Please note, additional charges apply for electrical access to outdoor events.

We had a very successful day on Campus in the Forum at Exeter University for our Spin and Win UK tour. Location wise, the Forum is perfect as it really is the heart of the university. We had an excellent space within the main foyer with plenty of room around us to enable us to engage easily with the passing students whilst also allowing our brand to be seen. Being central in the university meant that there was tremendous footfall and allowed us to network and engage with a large volume of students. I would recommend the Forum as the perfect place to anyone wishing to raise their brand on campus.
