Christ Church Students’ Union opened the new St George’s Centre in September 2012, with the building located between Rochester House and the Odeon Cinema on St George’s Street, Canterbury.
Where you can find us
The SU Offices, Bar, and Coffee Shop are all open so click here to go to Google Maps to find where the new building is.
The Lounge is the Student Union’s Boston inspired sports bar, and students very own living room atmosphere, with a mix of leather, wood and rust effect steel, this is a place that we know students will want to hang out in day though to evening.
With live sports shown on the 6 screens, as well as the large projector screen on the back wall, moveable staging for a multiude of different performances, from live bands and DJ’s to performace art, plays, cabaret acts and film showings, there will always be something happening throughout the day.
The varied pub grub menu is student friendly and will fill you up between lectures. Pool tables and It Boxes will add to the activities to entertain you, as will the collection of board games you can help yourself to. Sports Teams will love the fact that their trophies will be showcased in here in the trophy cabinet as well. Open all day, from breakfast to midnight, this versatile space offers something for everyone.

Study Zone and Reception
Bright, vibrant and student friendly, the Study Zone offers a comfortable atmosphere for group work and is wi-fi enabled throughout. With bright seats and clean lines, the furniture is all moveable so you can sit on your own or with a group. Students can bring their own food in here, or purchase from Thanks a Latte or The Lounge – whatever they want! The bank of vending machine and the cash point also mean that there is snackage available at all times of the day.
The giant chalk board is a space for students to write their ideas and wishes about new initatives.
Open from 8am to midnight (and longer for the students who live in the accommodation above), this is a truly great space for people who need to get some work done – no matter what the time!
The Reception desk, with its clean lines offers a one-stop shop for students who want information, need to book an appointment with an advisor, want to collect a hoodie, book a minibus, collect tickets to an event, find out about a club or a society, get some printing or binding done at the Print Shop, send a fax – pretty much anything you can imagine!
The fresh and funky Union Offices house the Union Sabbatical Offices and staff members, as well as providing a space for student part-time officers, sports and society committee members and the media volunteers to work on their various areas of involvement. Housing two consultation rooms for private advice appointments that are also available for nursing mothers and a large meeting room that any club, society or group of students can book for their own use for free, this space is the real hub of Union life.
Bright murals on the wall keep the area fun and reflect the vibrancy of Union life.
