The meal plan is an exciting way to ‘eat with us’; offering a flexible weekly budget that is tailored around your university schedule. We have long opening hours and a wide selection of restaurants and coffee shops, all with a focus on quality food and drinks for all your needs.
Our students enjoy the meal plan as it adds to the social well-being of the first year at University. All residents on the Vale are encouraged to use this facility. It also helps to free up time for studying whilst being catered.
Whatever your mood we have an offer to suit. Fusion restaurant offers a wide range of fresh, healthy and well-balanced food and Rios offers a choice of sandwiches, paninis and cakes as well as quality coffee to our guests that prefer a lighter option. Our chefs have worked in the catering industry for many years and have a real passion to deliver a quality and assured produce to our students. The University's sustainability policy aims to use British farmed goods and all our suppliers are tendered carefully.
The weekly amount runs from Monday – Sunday (7 days) and the balance gets refreshed on a Monday when the card is used through a till either in the hub or on main campus. If the weekly amount runs out before a Monday then the student can pay cash at the tills.
In addition to Fusion and Rios, the meal plan can also be used in many outlets on main campus. Additional purchases from Costcutter and the bars are cash and card payments only.
