Our catering team cooks fresh food on campus every day for our students. We treat mealtimes not just as an opportunity to refuel bodies for a busy day, but as an opportunity to switch off from the internet, and to engage in a more mindful routine of conversation.
Meals are taken centrally in our Dining Room, and students must attend every meal. Vegetarian options are available and there is always a selection of hot and cold dishes. Specific dietary requirements can of course be catered for.

On Tuesdays, we host an international dinner, which is prepared by outside chefs from local restaurants. This allows us to give our students an amazing and authentic culinary experience. In addition to this, on Thursdays we host an Italian evening, where students can choose to eat either freshly made pasta or they can book into our Pizzeria for a special treat.
In addition, all houses have their own kitchens which are used a lot by the students, and we encourage this as it is essential that students develop some autonomy in preparation for university. We even have a central herb garden, which students are welcome to use.
