Celebrate culture at UCL at the International Festival Join in

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 to usual so that we can keep you safe. One-way systems, more outdoor service and ordering via an app is our new normal. All bars are now closed due to the current England Lockdown. Return here or at the Bars Instagram for updates.

The Institute Bar will re-open on Weds 14 April 2021

we look forward to having you back!

Opening times:

Monday - Weds 17:00 - 22:00

Thurs - Fri 15:00 - 22:00

Following Government guidelines, we will be opening the outdoor terrace area, customers can meet in a group of up to 6 people from different households; a maximum of two households can meet to form a group of any size.

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