Locals will have to be signed in by students at Lincoln Tower Bar

Tower Bar sign-in: The University of Lincoln Students’ Union will implement a new non-student admission policy after taking over management of Tower Bar.

The University of Lincoln Students’ Union will implement a new admission policy for non-students after taking over management of the on-campus Tower Bar.

The University will transfer management of the bar and the popular Engine Shed venue to the SU in August in a bid to “improve student experience”.

Among changes enforced as a result, members of the public will only be able to gain entry to the Tower Bar if signed in by students starting September.

The SU said in a statement: “The change of management doesn’t mean the venues will be student-only.

“Members of the public will still be able to attend live music and comedy gigs at the Engine Shed, as they always have done.

“We will be introducing more student-focussed events though and we plan to make some changes to the admission policy at the Tower Bar, which would mean guests being signed in by students.

“Many student venues operate on this basis and it’s something our students have told us is important to them.

“There won’t be any changes until September and we’ll make sure our customers know well in advance.”
