Dylan's Kitchen and Bar:

Dylan's is the main bar on Campus, with a great atmosphere and relaxed setting. We offer hire of our bar for both internal and external functions. However, our main priority is our students and staff, so we don't offer private hire during the first term (approximately 3rd week in September through to the 2nd week in December).


The venue is multi-purpose, and in the past we've had: parties, presentations, award nights, and wedding receptions. Dylan's holds up to 330 people. 

NB: We do not do 18th birthday parties.




Expect to pay around £150 to hire our venue, however this will depend upon the type of event. 


Normal closing time is midnight but this can be extended to 1 or 2am, for a charge of £25 per hour.


We try and accommodate student events for as small a fee as we can, which in some circumstances may be free of charge. We may also be able to give discounted rates to university staff.


For external events we would normally insist that you have security, for which there is an added £80 charge. This will be dependent on factors such as: day of the week, number and age of guests, and type of event.


All payments are expected in full no later than 7 days prior to your event.




We have a range of buffets available at reasonable prices, please see our current buffet selection below.
