We have cafes, restaurants and 'grab and go' convenience stops across campus so whether you're looking for a quick snack or something more substantial, there will be something to suit your needs.

Nutrition and wellbeing

Eating healthy is good for the body and the mind. When you're on campus, you can be sure you'll be getting a great quality, nutritious meal which also supports a sustainable environment.

Our chefs use market research and student surveys to create menus that are healthy and delicious. We also adhere to guidelines of key government departments such as the Department of Health and Defra to maintain a high quality of food on offer.

We're helping to create a healthy community for everyone on campus by making sure you're getting balanced snacks and meals that taste good too.

Ask a member of staff at any outlet for more information about the nutrition and calorie content of our recipes.

Nourished Life is a comprehensive source of nutritionist-approved recipes, healthy eating advice, and lifestyle support. Find out the top tips to nourish your body, mind, and environment here: nourishedlife.co.uk


We know that where our food comes is as important to our staff and students as how it tastes. We strive to use ethical and sustainable products wherever we can and source local, fresh and seasonal food as often as possible..

We were recently awarded the sustainable restaurants association and we've also been accredited by:

We are proud to be part of the Healthier High Streets in the Barnet Council. At Middlesex University you’ll be guaranteed a healthy and nutritious food offer, and you have access to free drinking water.

Reducing our single use plastics

We want to make sure our campus is as clean and environmentally sustainable as it can be so we've made a number of changes in our food outlets. In selected outlets, we now only provide biodegradable cutlery and paper straws, we've installed refilling water fountains across campus and we also introduced a 5p cup levy on single use cups with a 20p discount if you use a reusable coffee cup.

Did you know?

From October 21 to July 2022 the water fountains have been used over 160,000 times, we've sold 650 reusable cups and with the 20p discount, students have saved over £2,000. We sold over 6,000 bottles of LIFE Water. We gave back £4,300 for sustainable projects to the university for your 5p cup charge.

Too good to go

Staff, students, and members of the local community will now be able to rescue surprise Magic Bags of food that would otherwise go to waste, helping to save the carbon emissions created through food production and tackle climate change.
