Popular Whiteknights campus nightclub 3Sixty Is getting its own refurbishment, with upgrades set to improve audio and visual equipment, accessibility and décor.
As part of Reading University Students’ Union (RUSU), the 3sixty refurbishment will see upgrades to the club’s key features, including cutting-edge audio/visual systems, better access and general improvements to facilities and décor.
The project is subject to planning permission at this stage, with the University looking to invest almost £2.9m into improving the club’s facilities. Though funded through the University’s 2026: TRANSFORM capital investment programme, the project is very much steered by RUSU, who have involved students in the designing of the project from its beginning.
Work is due to start in late March, after the end of the spring term, and is due for completion by the start of the next academic year.
The nature of the work taking place means that 3Sixty will close during the refurbishment – however, Mojo’s Bar, Café Mondial and Monterey Lounge will all remain open and will host many of the events already planned for the summer, including regular Wednesday and Saturday Union nights. The Graduation Ball on 18 May and Summer Ball on 9 June will both go ahead as planned.
Tristan Spencer, President of RUSU, said:
“We are delighted to be developing our nightclub for the benefit of our membership. We look forward to opening an improved area next academic year, which will provide students with a better club experience, more function space for our sports/societies, and improved access and safety.”
We will keep you updated as the refurbishment progresses over the coming months.
