Fresh Store - for bits and bobs

This convenient little supermarket is located on the Parade and is a great place to grab and go if you're on a tight schedule. You can also get all the essentials if you need to do a mini food shop if you plan on cooking at home. If you have a TOTUM NUS card, you can get a 10% discount on many of the products in the store (excluding red meat, sandwiches, alcohol and tobacco). All you got to do is swipe your card at the till to receive the discount, easy! 

4W Café - for a quick bite and a brew

You'll find the café on Parade as well and it's the perfect spot for a hot drink and a sandwich. The menu is tailored for breakest and lunch, with a lot of students choosing to take their food on the go (but you can sit in as well if you like).

Take advantage of the Exchange cup scheme where if you're using an Exchange cup (or any other reusable cup) in our outlets, you'll receive a 20p discount.

The Fountain Canteen - for variety and value

A large food court below Parade with multiple options here for all meals of the day. This includes fish and chips, noodles and a Value Corner which sells a selection of items from £1, such as soup, beans on toast and cakes. Get a free tea or coffee with every purchase if you remember to bring your own reusable cup.

Make the most of the Munch Box (food waste reduction initiative) by bringing your own container to buy surplus food for just £2.50! This is available at the end of hot counter service until the food has run out, from Monday to Friday at 2.20 pm.

The Lime Tree - for the best pizza on campus

The Lime Tree (located by The Quads) serves hot drinks, sandwiches, snacks, pizza, pasta, salads and roast dinners on Sundays. They participate in the Munch Box initiative and students can pay using their Eat and Drink credit so you'll be able to save a pretty penny here too. Why not treat yourself to a beer as the Lime Tree functions as a bar alongside being a cafe and a food court. 

The Hut - for ice cream in the sun
