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

The arts Refectory

The Refectory sits at the heart of campus, and is made up of several outlets. On the ground floor you will find:

The Refectory – Opening Times: 08.30-14.15 Monday-Friday

Freshly cooked dished from our chefs, everything from a hearty traditional breakfast, healthy fruit bar, home baked pizzas and freshly cooked pasta prepared daily with hot special dishes – often themed (fish and chip Friday is always a winner!)

There’s always a delicious vegetarian/Vegan option as well, along with one meal always priced at £3.90.

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

The Shop

The Shop will be closed throughout June

Serving a wide range of sandwiches and meal deals along with all your favourite branded snacks, confectionery and hot & cold drinks at great value prices.
