The Courtyard is YUSU’s flagship student bar offering food and drink service all day and right through until late. Located in the heart of Derwent college, The Courtyard is a warm, vibrant venue which offers students a place to relax, eat and party.

The venue boasts two separate rooms meaning it can be used for quiet study or watching the biggest match of the year all at the same time. The Courtyard is licensed to play both Sky and BT sports and offers the best atmosphere for any sporting event on campus. The busy sporting calendar doesn’t distract us from providing a vast amount of fantastic events. Gin festivals, election nights and on campus club nights – to name just a few.

Like our Facebook page for deals, events + fixtures and more. Not to mention some cheeky photos of our fab SU venue. 

The Courtyard is part of the YUSU Commercial Services family and proudly runs on a ‘Not for Profit Just for Students’ ethos. Every £1 spent at one of our venues gets put back into the Students’ Union and your student activities!
