Wolverhampton University student lounge ready to welcome Welsh Commonwealth team

A student lounge is opening up over the summer for the first time when members of Team Wales move in to Wolverhampton University’s Walsall campus ahead of the Commonwealth Games.

The Students’ Union Lounge at the campus is normally only open during term time for students and those on campus to use.

Supervisor Naomi Horne said this was the first time it would be open during the summer.

“It’s very exciting to be hosting the Welsh team and to be opening up for the first time this summer,” she said. “Student staff are coming in to work and it will be great to show our support.

“We will be decorating the lounge with some Welsh flags and adding a few touches to make the team feel at home.

“We will be offering the team food and drinks and a place to socialise and relax. It’s the first time we will be open during the summer.”

Around 60 members of Team Wales will be arriving at the campus this weekend (July 23) and staying during the Games, which run from July 28 to August 8.
