The Union Shop & Shop Extra

The Union runs a shop and a newsagent, which can be found on the main walkway near the Senior Common Room. Both outlets stock a wide variety of goods at competitive prices and because they’re controlled by the Union, every penny you spend will be reinvested into services, societies and staff that will directly benefit you over the coming years.

The Union Shop is the place to get all your stationary and study products as well as a great range of Imperial College London merchandise and memorabilia.

Shop Extra is our newsagent situated opposite the Union Shop and sells confectionery, drinks, healthy snacks, newspapers and magazines, everyday essentials such as toiletries and batteries, gifts and cards
