Here's how it works.

Each Sunday, you’ll have a budget added to your UniCard. You then have a week to spend your balance at any University café or canteen across campus at any time, on anything you like.

With Food on Campus you can forget about shopping, cooking, and washing up and instead focus your time on having the best possible University experience, studying, relaxing with friends and enjoying some great food.

The Food on Campus subscriptions are available at two different prices:

£19 per week for Plus and £38 per week for MAX, so you can choose the best option for your schedule. Best of all, we’ll top up your account with an additional 30% to spend completely free of charge, so you can continue to enjoy the food you love.
