SU website crashes as thousands try to buy varsity tickets


For the vast majority of us, this was our view this morning:


Students feverishly refreshed pages all over Lenton, only to be faced with the same, mocking error message. Distressed History finalist, Rhiannon Compton said: “It’s a joke that an organisation as big as the SU cannot provide decent technical support.”

Within 30 minutes of tickets going on sale, desperate Varsity fans had already taken to buy/sell to find alternative sources.


Congrats if you managed to make the final purchase and props to those of you still valiantly mashing the refresh key.
