Residential Catering

We offer catering packages to students living in our Castle Leazes accommodation.

What we offer

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

You'll benefit from a wide range of choice, including continental or traditional breakfasts, including '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).

If you are living at Castle Leazes and you aren't allocated a catered room you can still opt it to be able to benefit from the same breakfast and evening meal offer at Castle Leazes (Monday-Friday, during term time only), by purchasing a Residential Catering Package yourself. To opt in, you can purchase on our webstore.


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.

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

Packages & prices

Students living at Castle Leazes will have the option to opt-in to our residential catering package.

This means that even if you aren't allocated a catered room with us when you get your accommodation offer, you'll still be able to benefit from the same breakfast and evening meal offer at Castle Leazes (Monday-Friday, during term time only), by purchasing a residential catering package yourself.

The package will be available to purchase once you receive your offer of accommodation in August. This webpage will be updated with a link that will allow you to buy your chosen package.

The prices of the annual and termly opt-in package for September 2023/24 will be as follows:

  • Full year: £1548.45
  • Autumn (Term 1) - £649.35
  • Spring (Term 2) - £549.45
  • Summer (Term 3) - £349.65

Please be aware that while any new student will be eligible to buy this package, we recommend this only for Castle Leazes students as meals are served in this residence only and students will be required to travel there for their meals.

Please visit our Webstore to purchase the packages above. If you require breakfast only or evening meal only, please contact us for details.

I was assured not to worry and that my daughter would eat healthy, nutritious food during her first year away from home. Thank you for the peace of mind!

Opening hours

In the 2023-24 academic year, we will be serving breakfast between 7.50 and 10.30am, and evening meals between 5.30 and 8pm.



If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us directly via email.

There’s always something tasty to eat and the fact that you cater specially for students like myself after Sports Clubs with the late meals is great.
