Welcome to our brand new building! After years of dreaming and planning, we are incredibly happy to have opened our doors this October 2016  to our purpose-built, state-of-the-art venue right in the heart of the University Campus. With access to all the info you will ever need, as much caffeine as you can consume and an ice cold alcoholic beverage to unwind, it’s the perfect place to experience student life at YSJSU. Without further ado, allow us to introduce you to everything we have on offer.

Information Point

Our Information Point boasts all the info you will ever need to get you through your time at York St John, which will come directly from one of our friendly Information Point Advisors. This really is the central hub of our SU, and it is the place to come if you have lost something at an SU event, to grab hold of an essential NUS Extra discount card, to book in a meeting with a member of SU Staff or one of the Sabbatical Officers, for advice on your sports or society accounts, or just about anything else in-between. Behind the Information Point is also the SU Shop, which has a huge variety of York St John branded goods to make sure you stay looking fresh and rep Team YSJ to the fullest!

The Information Point is open Monday to Friday, 9am – 4pm, so drop by and say hi!

The Coffee Lounge

One word… STARBUCKS! Need we say more?! We are incredibly proud that in your SU we now serve the finest coffee on Campus all day from 8.30am-6pm, and in turn provide the best place to hang out, group study or just recharge your batteries before an afternoon lecture. In addition to this, we have the mega screen on all day, and plenty of comfy furniture to ensure it is a place which is truly difficult to leave.

In the evening, the Coffee Lounge becomes our second bar  and entertainment space, hosting the pub quiz, YSJSU Unplugged, karaoke and film nights, as well as sports and society private bookings as well as charity events.

This space is also bookable online for parties, socials, events, film or gaming nights. If you would like more information or want to place a booking just head here.


The Bar

Finally, we have your brand new Students’ Union Bar! Open from midday until late every day. Located on the ground floor, it features the finest of beverages, as well as six 55” screens playing anything from live sport to films to one off big events, it is the ultimate place to unwind!

We have a bar stocked full of everything you could want, whether alcoholic or a soft drink, and we also have daily drinks offers to make sure you can have a great time without breaking the bank, including the infamous £1 a pint every Saturday night.
