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. One-way systems, outdoor service, and ordering via our web app is our new normal.

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

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 in line with the latest advice. In the meantime you can read what all our bars are like.
