University of York Students' Union

Everyone deserves a bit of luxury now and then. Treat yourself to a VIP experience at The Den - a giant yurt which features authentic wooden benches, twinkling fairy-light decor and it's own cocktail bar serving a wide range of delectable alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. If the sun is beating down on York, sit outside and drink in all that's going on in The Forest that day.
