Find places to eat, drink and shop on campus


Choose from a wide range of cafés, dining halls and bars. Burgers. Sushi. Pizza. Steak. Vegetarian and vegan. We’ve got snacks, three-course dinners and most in between.

There are several different bars, restaurants and coffee shops to choose from, each with its own style and character. Whether you prefer to grab a coffee and work on your laptop, or somewhere comfy to enjoy a home-cooked meal with a large group of friends, there is a great choice. Take a look at Your Campus Food and Drink Guide to see details of what each venue has to offer as well as the term-time opening hours of each.
