If you want to enjoy great tasting, great value food, or if you just find the idea of having to cook for yourself quite daunting, our meal plan could be the perfect option for you. With access to food in a variety of outlets on campus and in the Oadby Student Village, our meal plan gives you the flexibility to enjoy student life without worrying about your next meal.
To help you budget your money, you will receive your food allowance in three instalments in line with the start of each term. Any money left in your account after each term will roll over, it can even roll over into the next academic year, meaning that you can spend your money throughout your study. It’s up to you how you spend that money and if you do run out you’ll still have the option of adding money to your account.
It will be easy for you to keep track of the money you spend with our Meal Plan app, and with the ability to automatically top-up your account, there’s no need to carry cash around. Other features on the app will allow you to pre-order food for collection in selected outlets, top up your food allowance and book your place on residence life events. Your parent/guardian can even top-up your allowance from home!
The Meal Plan can be used in designated outlets across campus including chi, the library café, delic!ous and more. Our wide range of dining options means that you don’t have to rush back to halls for an evening meal. You can plan ahead and eat on campus. Our food includes a range of breakfasts, sandwiches, salads, soups, panini and hot meals, perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Our brand new food court at the Oadby Student Village brings a wide choice of cuisines to your doorstep every day. Our award winning Executive Head Chef designs delicious menus to cater for all tastes and dietary requirements. We pride ourselves on being the first ever UK university to have Coeliac UK accreditation.
For any essential items you can also spend your food allowance in The Village Shop, part of The Village Hub, which sells basic items such as bread, milk and tea bags.
