Want to know what's available or looking for something in particular?

Knowing exactly what you're eating is important especially if you have an allergy or intolerance. That's why we label all allergen information on our non-packaged food and drinks.
It is also available on request in the Catering Office or you can speak to a member of staff at any of our outlets.
We cater for the following dietary requirements across the majority of our eateries:

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. You can also find this information on the daily menu displays at Streat.
The Nourished Life is a free resource which has expert advice on your health and wellbeing. It also has helpful information on allergens, nutrients and eating well all written by our registered nutritionists. You can even contact a nutritionist directly to ask any questions you have about nutrition, food or cooking.
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 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.
From January to June 2019 the water fountains have been used over 270,000 times, we've sold 1,185 reusable cups and with the 20p discount, students have saved a massive £4,700.
As a student, we encourage you to be active in our campus' sustainability and environmental care. One of our students, Maggie Davies, has played an important role in further promoting plastic reduction on campus and we welcome your comments and suggestions for other ideas and campaigns.
Throughout the academic year, you can look forward to a series of events, campaigns and pop-up stalls such as:
