When visiting our bars, there are a number of things to note. Here is our entry policy:


  • Entry/exit searches and the right to search whilst inside the venue is a condition of entry. An entry bag search is mandatory on select nights where informed by our security, the others will be at the discretion of venue management. Unwillingness to comply with a mandatory bag search will result in a refusal of entry to the bars.

  • Students’ Union UCL Bars operate a zero tolerance policy to drugs. Anyone found with illegal drugs will be reported to the police and most likely banned from all of our bars. Anyone found to be asking for drugs or offering drugs may also face a significant ban.

  • We also operate a zero tolerance towards sexual misconduct. For more information on this, head here.

  • Anyone found to be in possession of a weapon will be banned from the venue and the police will be called.

  • Customers should never bring alcohol in from external licensed premises if caught doing so, the articles in question will be confiscated without return. Likewise, when leaving our venues, it is not permitted to take any beverage out of the building in question, as it breaches our strict premise licenses.

  • Only people aged 18 and over will be admitted to Students’ Union UCL Bars.

  • All customers are required to present their ID on entry. Strictly no ID, no entry. Your ID will be checked by our security team as a condition of entry.

  • We only accept a valid UCL Student ID or UK University ID; and where guests are concerned, passport, foreign national ID cards, driving license or home office approved PASS hologram as identification and/or proof of age. We only accept originals, we do not accept photocopies; this includes photos of an ID on a device.

  • Once in the bar, one should keep their ID on their person, as we cannot guarantee you won’t be asked to produce it again. Your belongings should also remain in your possession as we cannot guarantee their security throughout your visit.

  • Management reserve the right to refuse entry.
