Join us as we celebrate DUSA's 50th Birthday.

About this Event

Back in 1974 DUSA opened its doors (although founded in 1969) on Airlie Place and since then we have committed ourselves to providing students with an incredible student experience.

For many of you this will have been the place where you had your first pint, first dance, and even found your first love… and it must’ve all went well, because here we are 50 years later, with tens of thousands of happy clubbers later and with students having found the support they needed, DUSA has worked its magic throughout the years.

A lot has happened since we opened all those years ago; we started over 300 globally recognised societies, became the No1 Students’ Union in Scotland, and established a representation system that allowed to make incredible changes all over campus. Our building is now bigger and better than ever with 5 floors all fully equipped with 7 bars and clubs.

Now that you have completed entire degrees and gone on to become genuinely respectable members of society (who'd have thought it?!) the fact remains that we are still here day in and day out striving to provide the best possible student experience. We may be turning 50 but we’re still young at heart...

We'd like to invite all of you - old and new - to join us for a toast or 10 on Saturday the 2nd of November at DUSA as we raise the roof in honour of our 50th Birthday and as a thank you for being part of our story. Please see details below:

We’ll be hosting our 50th Birthday Bash in DUSA at 7:30pm. This event is completely free of charge and you can reserve your space here.

Join us to dance the night away with live music from ‘Sorted’. We’ll be serving retro basket bar food and premium cocktails throughout the night. You will also get the first look at our 50th anniversary Exhibition looking at DUSA through the decades, if you have any photos or memorabilia you’d like to share with us please send them over to vpcc@dusa.co.uk. Dress code is Smart/Casual – No Jeans.

To sweeten the deal even further, we’re also throwing in a 20% discount at Indigo Hotel here in the heart of Dundee. Our wonderful student ambassadors will also be offering campus tours on Saturday afternoon so you can reminisce about the good old days before dancing the night away.

Here’s to the next 50 years!
