Our Campus - Overview
Our Campus

This is AUB. A place to shape and build your work; to learn, share, provoke and collaborate.

Food and Drink

We know that you need delicious, healthy and well-priced food when you're in the middle of a brilliant project, so don't worry. We’ve got plenty of choices all over campus. You can’t innovate on an empty stomach.

  • All our fish comes from sustainable well managed marine sources
  • We strongly support the Fairtrade Foundation – all of our bananas are Fairtrade
  • All our milk is sourced from the UK
  • All our eggs are British sourced with the Lion Mark and Free Range
  • Over 30% of our delivery vehicles use Bio-Diesel
  • Information is always available on dietary requirements, and GDA information is always available

The Refectory sits at the heart of campus and is made up of several outlets.

It offers freshly cooked dishes from our chefs, including everything from a hearty traditional breakfast, a healthy fruit bar, home-baked pizzas and freshly cooked pasta prepared daily with hot special dishes - often themed (fish and chips Friday is always a winner!)

There's always a delicious vegetarian/vegan options as well, along with one meal always priced at £3.90.

This is where you can also find our freshly prepared salad bar.
