Catered Offering

Easy, convenient and healthy catered accommodation 

We offer a residential catering package to save you time and money, consisting of great quality, fresh, and nutritional meals.

As a student with one of our catered room options, you'll benefit from a wide range of meal choice, including continental or traditional breakfasts, 'grab and go' options,  and a three-course evening meal (consisting of a variety of options including meat-based, vegetarian, vegan and Halal for starters and mains, as well as traditional/healthy desserts).

What's more, you'll be able to redeem your breakfast anywhere on campus. So, if you don't have time to grab something to eat before you 9am lecture, you'll be able to pick something up on the way or afterwards elsewhere on campus.

Our menus have been prepared by our experienced chefs and consist of a range of daily options, including meat-based, vegetarian, vegan and halal dishes. The menus change each term, and we also serve different dishes each week (on a 6-week rotation) so that you won't get bored! You can see sample menus below:

Information on allergens for each of the dishes will be available in the servery. If in doubt, please don't hesitate to ask us!
