Food and Drink

Feeling peckish? Our refectory has everything you need to keep going throughout the day.

Our on-campus cafe offers everything from a cup of coffee to a full meal.

Whatever you fancy, we've got you covered... Enjoy a freshly made wrap or a roast dinner just as good as (maybe even better than) your mum’s, grab a sandwich or some chips, or chill out with a delicious coffee and a slice of cake.

Special dietary requirements

Our Chef works hard to offer a wide range of food across the campus to suit everyone, including delicious vegan options and gluten-free alternatives!

If you have a query or special request, please get in touch with our Student Services team - we’ll do our best to cater for you.

A sustainable approach

Our catering team are constantly working to improve their approach to ensure they are as sustainable as possible. This includes:

  • Using local suppliers wherever possible to reduce the miles our ingredients travel and to support the local economy
  • Selling pre-packed sandwiches that are packaged using plastic free eco packaging
  • Recycling all of our waste oil
  • Streamlining our supply chain to reduce the number of deliveries
  • Providing cutlery and crockery wherever possible to reduce waste

Paying for food and drink

Our refectory is cashless, but you're welcome to pay by credit or debit card. We also accept contactless payment if you'd prefer to pay with your phone or watch.

In addition to this, you can choose to pay with your student ID card. Just top up your ID card with money by paying through our online shop.
