The Academy

The Academy Cambridge is your very own on campus SU bar!




For years The Academy has been the place to be for students on our Cambridge Campus. We run a huge range of events all the way from quizzes and movie nights, to live performances and club nights! Open a minimum of three nights a week with regular week day and weekend events, we're always working to give you a social space you can enjoy!

 We're constantly trying to improve the events we offer to students and in the spirit of this, we've partnered up with certain select external companies to create a more diverse and varied events schedule just for you! With our amazing prices, dynamic events and our desire to give you the best student experience we can, we hope you'll enjoy your time with us.

Planning on coming to visit? Why not take a look at our Menu before you arrive?

If you're interested in what's happening in The Academy, head on over to the Events Calendar and have a look at what we're doing. We're sure there'll be something there that grabs your attention!

We take great pride in putting on the best events for our students and we're always looking for new things to get you engaged. If you'd like to run an event with us, or you have an idea for something you'd like to see in The Academy, get in touch with us via email:
