You can find our newly-refurbished campus café near the main reception. Open to students, staff and visitors, it offers a bright, comfortable social space with access to the terrace area with fantastic views. 

This brand new space comprises a new Students’ Union office and store, pool table, lounge area, and sound system. With wireless connection and sockets available, this cozy area can double up as a workspace or meeting place.

The refurbished refectory has new furniture, including banquette style seating and booths, and trades on good home-style food and caters for every budget. Look out for cut-price dinners, theme days and traditional roasts through to hot and spicy Goan options.

Café specialities include: 

  • A full selection of Tchibo Italian coffee, speciality teas and associated branded goods
  • A popular SubStop fresh deli bar selling freshly prepared sandwiches, baguettes and sub rolls with a choice of over 30 fillings
  • An extensive freshly-prepared hot lunch menu
  • A self-serve salad bar presenting a variety of imaginative salads, available throughout the year

Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.

Our catering service shares the vision of the Fairtrade Foundation. You’ll find their products available in all our cafés and bars, including coffee, tea, fruit juices, water, chocolate and cereal bars.

To help reduce our impact on the environment, we’re also working with the catering service to put initiatives in place that will:

  • Limit the amount of food waste we produce
  • Reduce packaging
  • Improve recycling.
