Friend Stop 

Meet new people, connect and share experiences at the café's Friend Stop.
Starting university may be a daunting experience, that's why the cafés on campus have created designated pop-up tables to encourage students and staff to sit, have a natter and make friends on our open and inviting tables.
Everyone is invited to sit at the Friend Stop; whether you're on your own or with a friend or colleague, take a seat, share the table and have a chat with new people.
Whether you stay for ten minutes or spend your time eating breakfast or taking an afternoon tea break, the cafés aim to bring everyone together.
