Meal Plan is a convenient way to ‘eat with us’ at The Vale Village, giving you a flexible weekly budget for your meals that’s tailored to your University schedule. It’s a great way for you to socialise and helps to free up time for studying – you don’t need to worry about food shopping, meal planning and cooking.
If you opt for Meal Plan, your Student ID card will be credited with a weekly amount of money to spend on your meals. You can start using Meal Plan from the day you arrive - the outlets at the Vale are open over arrivals weekend. The balance runs from Saturday to Friday and gets refreshed every Saturday when you use your card through a till either in the Hub or on the main campus.
There’s a great choice of restaurants and coffee shops, including: Infusion for a wide range of fresh and healthy food; The Melt for sandwiches, paninis, cakes and coffees; and lots of other outlets on the main campus. Our chefs have worked in the catering industry for many years and have a real passion to deliver the highest quality. The University's sustainability policy also means we aim to use British farmed goods and carefully selected suppliers.
The Meal Plan card isn’t accepted at Costcutter and the University bars.
