The Thirsty Scholar Bar

An Englishman, an Ivorian and a Nicaraguan walk into a bar…

But seriously, it happens all the time. There’s a different deal every night in our very own bar, The Thirsty Scholar. Yes, it’s under the same roof as your room - you don’t even have to go outside to go out!

“A great night with friends would always start or somehow end in the bar, not only because of the prices but also because the atmosphere and the familiar, friendly faces made it somewhere special to all of us” - Gabriel, Cyprus.

Snacks, lunches, coffee or pizza night with friends - it’s all in The Thirsty Scholar. Grab a soup or sandwich with coffee during the day to get you through studying, then drop your books in your room and head back down for pub quiz, drinks deals or legendary karaoke when your assignments are done. Some of the staff can sing better than they’d want you to know...

The Thirsty Scholar also runs special events throughout the year - the big screen shows major live sports events like Premier and Champions league football and Six Nations rugby series, as well as hosting the legendary Superbowl late night party and showing Eurovision. Yes, people get competitive.

If you’d like to reserve a table, hire the bar for a private event or contact the team with any other enquiries, email
