The Lounge

Specialising in cocktails, The Lounge is the home of student led events, and your one stop shop if you're looking for something different to do with your evening! 

Located in James College, we're a great choice regardless of if your night is staying on campus or heading into town. The Lounge hosts the best and biggest events on campus! Whether it's being run by your college, YUSU or students, keep an eye out for some great evenings at The Lounge this year.


The Lounge 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!

Keep an eye out on Facebook to keep up to date with all things Lounge!

"Total Event Service"

Got an idea for an event but don't know where to start? Don't have the time to get everything you'll need sorted? Hate those pesky EMFs?

Get in touch and we can sort a package that works for you, with as much or as little input from us as you'd like! 

New to running events? We'll take you step by step through the events process, helping you every step of the way, up to the night of your event. 

Know what you're doing? We'll let you take the lead, but can offer basic support, from completing EMFs to promoting your event on Facebook and coming up with some bespoke drinks deals!

To book or make an enquiry, just drop Harriet an email on and she'll get back to you to get your plans in action!
