Eating in College

We offer a range of high-quality, good-value food (including vegetarian options) for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is a Formal Dinner once a week in term-time, as well as occasional special dinners. Our easy-to-use cashless system means that you only pay for the meals you eat.

All students pay a compulsory catering credit that is returned to them in the form of meal credits. The amount varies depending on the type of accommodation you are in. You can find further information about the catering credit here.

For those who want to cook their own food, there are also kitchens around College. For a quick snack, the Dining Hall is open between meals. In the Buttery (or College snack bar), located in the Junior Common Room, you can buy toasties, bagels, crisps, chocolate, sweets and hot and cold drinks.
