Good mix of independent beers downstairs, while Terraces tends to just deal with lagers and run of the mill drinks. Not bad but annoyingly sticky on tables and chairs (what should I expect in a Student Union!) Also not as cheap as I thought it...More

If you must see your favourite band here then do, but being locked in with no pass outs is a nightmare with the one basic bar selling pricey buckets of slop beer, and nowhere to chill out,its not cool. The smoking area was being patrolled...More

Came here as a couple, driving from out of town, for a gig. We're fairly familiar with Leeds but still found it hard to find 'Stylus' (the name they give the venue for gigs) due to complete lack of signs from the campus carpark. Even...More

Grew up with this union and after seeing what other student unions look like, Leeds University Union is top! The union has a mini-supermarket where you can get lunches (sandwich+fruit/crisp+drinks)for less than GBP3. There are all the other stuffs that you may (or may not...More
