Imperial College Union

Relive your student days with a visit to the Union Bar.

Imperial College Union membership

For a life membership fee of £40 you will be able to use the Union and attend events with up to two guests, only paying the special student rate. As a life member you can continue to meet your friends at the campus bars in South Kensington, at Silwood and at Charing Cross. You can join a club or society and you will be welcome at sporting events and other club and society events such as musical productions or film showings as well as major yearly events, such as the International Night and the Summer Ball. 

With the new product you will be able to indicate where you would like £30 to go within the Union - including individual Clubs, Societies & Projects. This means your purchase can directly support the CSPs and services that have mattered to you most whilst you were a student at the College.

If you can’t decide which CSPs to support with you money, don’t worry the Union will put it towards the student experience in general.

For more information, and how to apply, please visit the Student Union website.

Accessing the Student Union Bar

Alumni wishing to visit the Union Bar can do so at any time. The bar license requires alumni to prove their identity upon arrival, which you can now do by displaying your account. You may bring up to four guests on any one visit, and will be issued with a day pass for use until the bar closes. Recent alumni still in possession of their College identification card can present this to bar staff instead of another form of identity. Find out more about accessing the Union Bar.
