Loyalty points information

On Monday 19 December 2022 we will be installing a new till system in all of our units across campus. From this date the current hot drink loyalty offer will no longer be used and payment via your staff or student card will not be accepted. Unfortunately, we are unable to transfer any ‘points’ from the current loyalty program, but we look forward to rolling out a brand new app based loyalty system in the New Year with new offers and deals.

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.

Global Recipe Book 

As part of Global Week, 14–18 November 2022, staff and students were invited to share their favourite recipes from around the world. 
After receiving some excellent submissions, the Global Recipe Book was put together by the Catering Team, offering you the chance to create these dishes and try something new. Each page offers everything you'll need - from ingredients through to cooking methods.
