The event, “University Question Time”, will start at 5pm at the LPAC and is open to all staff and students, however student cards are required for entry.

Also on the panel will be Chris Charnley, president of Lincoln SU, Richard Keeble, acting head of the Lincoln School of Journalism, as well as Jack Dobson, a member of University of Lincoln Occupation. Roger Buttery, university board member and SU trustee, will be chairing the discussion.

The meeting is a result of the student occupation at the university in December, in protest against the rise in tuition fees. The group spent 219 hours in the beanbag room in the Main Admin Building and finished following a meeting with Stuart.
