SKINT students have their own Wetherspoon pub on campus.
The pub chain has converted Luther’s Bar, run by the Newcastle University student union, into one of its boozers.
Undergrads can enjoy cheap booze plus budget promos such as Thursday Curry Club and free tea and coffee refills.
The current staff of 30 will increase to 70 owing to its popularity.
Wetherspoon’s chief executive John Hutson said: “We are delighted to have entered into this partnership and look forward to making Luther’s Bar a great success.”
Student union president Shah Yaseen Ali said: “Through our partnership with Wetherspoon, students will benefit from not only its value-for-money food and drinks offering.

“Being only the second students’ union to partner with Wetherspoon illustrates the commitment to enhancing our students’ experience.”
The bar is named after activist Martin Luther King who visited in 1967 to receive an honorary doctorate in civil law.
