The Courtyard is YUSU’s biggest Venue and is the ideal place to chill out. The perfect space to hang in between lectures, catching up with friends or just blowing off some steam after a long day of being a student.

The Courtyard has a bright and vibrant atmosphere that can cater to all student needs, this is provided through our two rooms and our newly renovated beer garden which sees The Courtyard come to life during our summer months!

The Courtyard is the place to be all year round, we provide you with the biggest and best sporting events live from Sky and BT Sports and the best food menu campus has to offer.  Don’t forget to check out our events throughout the year such as our infamous Courtyard Birthday Bash and our twice termly Timewarp. So whether you're looking for a quick bite to eat, coffee or a cheeky cocktail during our happy hour - The Courtyard is the place to be, YOUR SU.
