Drop-ins on campus


A drop-in will allow you to raise your profile with our students and meet potential employees informally by having a stand in our busy student services building.

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.

Bookings for autumn term 2019 are now open. If you would like to book in a drop-in event, please see contact details further below.

Please click on the headings below for more information, including prices.  

Require a bigger space or looking to hold a large scale installation? Then see our showcase events page. 

Drop-ins are located within the Forum building on the Streatham campus, in an area known as ‘The Street’. Click here to view a photo of this space. 

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, coffee shops, Career Zone, seminar rooms, and a 435 seater auditorium. A busy space, it attracts approximately 6,000 visitors each day, with students of any discipline passing through.

Drop-ins consist of a table and two chairs, an electrical point, Wi-Fi and space for a banner stand.

Most bookings are made for the autumn and spring term (February is exceptionally busy), but they are held throughout the academic year. Offered Monday – Friday, they can take place anytime between 09:00 - 17:00. Most organisations opt for a 10:30-14:30 or 11:30-15:30 slot but it is flexible and entirely to your choosing.  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.

Please note the earliest you are able to set up your drop-in is from 8am. 

Drop-ins are advertised via:

  • The Career Zone website
  • Our internal online events site ‘My Career Zone’
  • Email circular, sent to all Streatham and St Luke’s campus based students (approximately 20,000)
  • Via our social media channels.  

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

In order to benefit from all the publicity opportunities and get the best attendance, we urge you to book a date with us as early as possible - many employers secure their preferred dates when we first open for bookings (early February for the upcoming autumn term). As the spring term has increased in popularity resulting in extremely high demand, we strongly recommend booking well before the end of the autumn term to avoid disappointment.

Drop-ins start from £150 + VAT. Charges include marketing as outlined above and support from the Employment Services team on the day. 

Please note, additional charges may apply if access to electrical points is required.
