Sanctuary Bar is the main bar at Hull University Union with great prices on food and drinks, as well as having the largest beer garden in Hull, it’s the place to go after a hard day at Uni.
Sanctuary also shows all the major live sporting events you’d expect to see on Sky Sports and BT Sport, including Premier League, Champions League, Six Nations and Formula One. As well as having a 3D screen, we have the ability to show two Sky channels at the same time, meaning you won’t miss a minute of the action!
Adjacent to Sanctuary is The Clubhouse, ideal for sports teams and society events. The Clubhouse is home to a 10ft projected screen for watching the best sporting action.
Every week in Sanctuary we host some great events. Our ever-popular Karaoke night is every Thursday, where you can sing your heart out, no matter your level of talent! Every Sunday, stop by the Clubhouse for the best live sport and free pool, or make a day of it and stick around for the legendary pub quiz that takes over the bar with big cash prizes.
Named after the journalist and former University of Hull student, John McCarthy (affectionately referred to as the Johnny Mac by students) is open from 8:30am until 3pm every day for breakfast, lunch and coffee. It also hosts Bounce Bass Music events and a rock night, Full Metal Jacket, once a month. During Tower and Brassick nights, Johnny Mac becomes Room Two, and it is also available for student society events nearly every night of the week, making it HUU’s most diverse venue.
Student safety is our number one priority in the operation of our licensed venues at Hull University Union. We are very pleased to have received a Best Bar None Gold award for the 5th year running and the recognition that our venues are managed and operated to a very high standard by our fantastic commerical team. We will continue to ensure that our venues are the safest places in Hull for our students to socialise, and look forward to welcoming our new and returning students back in September with some new and exciting events.
