The Nipissing University Student Union (NUSU), Nipissing University and Sodexo Canada are pleased to announce the upcoming grand opening of the highly anticipated On The Rocks nightclub located within the NUSU Student Centre (221 College Drive).

"The opening of On The Rocks nightclub is welcome news to Nipissing students and alumni who have been eager to enjoy the space at its full potential,” said Nicolas Gignac, On The Rocks manager. 

The official opening will take place on Friday, September 15 at 10 p.m. 

In general, the nightclub will be open on Fridays to Nipissing University students only ("Lakers Night") at a cost of $5 per person, and Saturdays ("Escape Saturdays") to the general public at a cost of $10 per person. It will also be open to all on Homecoming Weekend, September 22-24, 2023 for $10 per person. 

"We are excited to have a space on campus where students can enjoy a fun night out with friends and create positive memories during their time at Nipissing," said Riley McEntee, NUSU President. 

Bus transportation will be provided to patrons on both nights and will have pick-up and drop-off sites at Nipissing and Canadore residences, as well as stops along McKeown Avenue and Gormanville Road. With the safety and well-being of patrons being the top priority, Campus Security will be working with GardaWorld to ensure a secure and enjoyable environment. 

"On The Rocks Nightclub will offer students a safe and convenient place to gather and socialize and will contribute to a vibrant campus life at Nipissing,” said Renée Hacquard, Assistant Vice-President, Finance & Infrastructure, Nipissing University. “We look forward to celebrating its opening alongside NUSU and inviting alumni back to campus to enjoy the space during Homecoming weekend.”
