General Information

Students who wish to go to another university's student bar in the UK should provide their Student Card. It is therefore handy to also carry your Birkbeck ID card with you at all times.

When going to any student bar, students should take the necessary considerations like any other regular bar that they would go to: no anti-social or disorderly behaviour and refrain from intoxicating themselves. Students who do not respect the wishes of the staff and security may end up barred from the bar, permanently.

University Student Bars tend to be cheaper than other non-student bars in London.

If you're around Russell Square, why not help yourself to a free meal provided for by the Hare Krishna people just outside SOAS. You can't miss it, there is always a queue! It starts at around 12 and last until 2 the latest.
