The Container

Visit the University’s most unique cafe on campus, with a focus on high-quality handmade food which is created on campus by our Hospitality catering team. The Container is open from 08:30–16:30 during term time and is located on the ground floor of the Roland Levinsky Building.

The Container cafe's food and drink is a continuation of the Hospitality Shop, with the Container being the new collection point for food boxes and other food supplies. Walk in or pre-order picnic boxes, sweet treats, bakes and breakfast croissants, as well as hot and cold drinks from a barista using organic coffee locally roasted from Owen's Coffee.

Sourcing food and drink from local and sustainable companies is important to the catering team at the University of Plymouth and we're pleased to be collaborating with a fantastic variety of Devon and Cornwall businesses.  

Sustainability is at the core of the cafe with innovative environmental initiatives in place, including the use of a milk pergal to minimise plastic bottles, offering minimal single-use plastic, and all packaging and napkins to be used from sustainable plant-based or recycled materials.
