After a long stressful day of classes, most students want to grab a few friends and have a pint in the student union. At most campuses, a pint in the SU will be much cheaper than anything found in local pubs.
Some SUs take this idea to the extreme, offering pints at such low prices that you could have a fun night out for just a fiver.
Topping the list is UWE Bristol, where prices for pints start at one pound. You’ll find these low priced drinks in the university’s four student union bars, and at both of the university’s campuses. UWE Bristol is the place to go if you want to get hammered on the cheap.
Another student union bar that offers some of the cheapest pints around is The Taf at Cardiff University. Their pints start at £1.89.
Finally, check out the Old Bar at the Leeds University Student Union, where you’ll find pints of lager, ale, and cider for two pounds. The Old Bar has been a student hangout since 1939, and the prices don’t seem to have changed much since the place first opened.
These three SU take the idea of having a cheap night out to the next level. We salute them!
