At iQ Salford Student Accommodation we've had a bumper year of social events on site. All of our events this year have been totally free to our residents and they will of course continue to be free next year!
From move-in week when we had a hot dog BBQ, DJ set from the Student Union, staff ice bucket challenge and a Hollywood-themed fancy dress evening (which continued on to 5th Avenue club in Manchester afterwards) to our most recent big event with giant inflatable party games, a huge BBQ and drinks... this year has been a LOT of fun!
In between we’ve held events like a site bake-off, Halloween event, Bonfire Night cakes, Christmas competitions, "Earth Hour" glow-in-the-dark party, Chinese New Year food, and Valentine’s Day Love Heart hunt. After this we hosted an inter-flat pancake competition, Easter Egg hunt, art competition and celebrated the opening of our brand new onsite gym with a healthy BBQ & smoothies afternoon.
Most recently we have had a mid-exam stress-busting afternoon on site with giant inflatable games such as sumo wrestling, gladiator joust, wipe-out challenge, human table-football and archery. There was also a Man Vs Food challenge where 20 students had 10 minutes to eat as much pizza as they could. The winner received some shopping vouchers and an engraved trophy! There was plenty of BBQ food and drinks and one of our tenants played a fantastic DJ set throughout the afternoon. And we’re not finished yet! In a couple of weeks we’ll be hosting our final event of the year, a beach party on site. We can’t all go to Ibiza so we’re bringing the beach to us! Live music, food, cocktails, sand and (fingers crossed) sunshine are on their way!
