Food and Drink
The cafeteria, Formal Halls, coffee shop and bar provide a range of food and drink options in College, as well as a great way to socialise with friends during the day and into the evening. Whether it’s a filling, cooked meal in between lectures and studying, or a sneaky cinnamon swirl with your morning latte, you’re bound to find something to your taste.
The College Cafeteria serves three hot and inexpensive meals a day during Full Term. Service is cafeteria style, and the food chosen is electronically charged to the student’s account. A Kitchen Committee, on which there is student representation, monitors the quality and variety of College meals, and the kitchen staff make every effort to accommodate those with special dietary requirements.
Twice a week there are optional Formal Halls where students are served at table and food is of a high quality. ‘Super Halls’ with themed menus are also regularly held and prove very popular. Often, students will entertain friends from other colleges at these events.
The Coffee Shop serves barista-style coffees, sandwiches, snacks and a range of delicious homemade cakes.
While eating in Hall is an important way to be a part of any college, students are also able to cook their own meals or host dinners for others. Each staircase on Central Site has one or more kitchenettes, equipped with basic self-catering facilities (microwave, kettle, fridge) for student use. At Thompson’s Lane and Wychfield the accommodation has fully-equipped shared kitchens. There are two supermarkets nearby a plus a range of specialist food stalls in the Market Square.
The Aula Bar offers a sleek and modern setting in which to have a drink and catch up with friends after a hard day’s work, and it provides an excellent space for ‘Crescent Room’ nights – student-run, themed club nights held in College.
