UBU tops cheap booze survey

If such pint-sized prices won’t draw the punters in, what will?

UBU flogs some of the cheapest booze in the country, according to a new survey.

In news that may come as a surprise to some of the Union’s harsher critics, Bristol has edged Leeds and Manchester to claim the top spot for peddling cheap drinks in a survey of 20 universities, with a round setting students back just £5.80.

The Price of a Pint Index, conducted by student favourite Vouchercodes.co.uk, ranked the UK’s 20 most popular universities according to the cost of the slightly grim combination of a pint, a vodka mixer and a glass of wine.

Leeds and Manchester took 2nd and 3rd place, with students able to buy a round at the very reasonable prices of £6.27 and £6.30 respectively.

Bristol’s rounds came in at almost £2 cheaper than at Liverpool’s Union, and whopping £3.10 cheaper than Ulster.

Manchester Met nabbed the prize for the cheapest pint, with a lager setting students back just £1.50. The cheapest vodka mixer and glass of wine can be sourced at UCL, at a snip of £1.65.
