We have four Union bars on campus for you. Prices are low and the vibe is always chilled. We know how important these spaces are to meeting and connecting with fellow students and friends, so if you’re planning on popping in, we’ll be ready to greet you. We’ve carefully considered which spaces to open first, with your safety, and the safety of the students who work in our spaces, our number one priority.

How our spaces work will feel a little different from usual so that we can keep you safe. With restrictions having lifted on Monday, 19th July 2021, we are now operating a bar and till service, rather than our web ordering app. However, we do expect customers to continue wearing a face covering when approaching the bar and being mindful of others.

The Institute Bar is open (with our others closed). Head to our Bars Instagram for updates.

The Institute Bar has re-opened with the following times:
Monday-Wednesday 17:00 - 22:00
Thursday-Friday 15:00 - 23:00

We’ll consider carefully open more of our bars as term one progresses and in line with the latest advice. In the meantime, you can read what all our bars are like.
