University of York Students' Union

Standing proudly in the centre of The Forest, The Canopy will quickly become your favourite bar on campus. Kitted out with it's own stage and container bar, expect to see club nights, DJ sets and other entertainment put on here across term 1.

It’s the perfect place to meet friends, kick back and watch the sunset as The Forest begins to come alive at night.
