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 November 5th - December 2nd England Lockdown. Return here or at the Bars Instagram for updates.

When we return to Tier 2/London COVID High Alert restrictions, those inside the bars must be in groups of no more than six people, with those people all being from the same household. If you wish to sit outside on the terrace at The Institute Bar, you may be in a mix-household group (doesn’t apply at Phineas, as there’s no outdoor space). We may ask for proof of address to adhere to the restrictions.

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…
