Welcome to your Students’ Union building! After years of dreaming and planning, we opened the doors in October 2016 to a brand new, purpose-built, state-of-the-art venue right in the heart of the University Campus. With access to all the information 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, jump in and explore everything we have on offer.
Our Information Point boasts all the support 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 TOTUM (NUS) 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, 09:00 – 16:00, so drop by and say hi!
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 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 events and charity fundraisers.
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 head here.
