If you would rather avoid the hassle of shopping for food – and have access to a wide range of cuisines – a catered hall may be for you.
Clever Cuisine offers four Eating Plans that are available for students with both catered and self-catered accommodation. With 13 catering outlets spread across halls, Whiteknights and London Road campus, there’s a large selection of food for students to choose from. Visit Clever Cuisine’s website to find out what nutritious and delicious foods they offer. Go out to eat or stay in – the choice is yours.
How does catered accommodation work?
Credit is loaded onto your Campus Card weekly. The amount added depends on the Eating Plan included in your catered accommodation. Your credit will begin on Saturday at 00:01 and end on Friday at 23:59 and you can use your credit in any of the outlets listed in your Eating Plan.
There are four Eating Plans available for students – Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze. They can be paid for either by the term or year.
Platinum 21 Eating Plan: The Platinum Eating Plan is included in the weekly rate for catered rooms at Dunsden, Windsor and Wantage Halls. £86.03 per week covers all your meals each day, as well as providing unlimited hot each week. You can also choose to add this eating plan to any other room type. Going Platinum gives you all the benefits of an eating plan whilst allowing you to live in your room of preference.
Gold 14 Eating Plan: The Gold Eating Plan is included in the weekly rate for St. Patrick’s catered standard rooms. This plan gives you £65.52 a week to use, covering up to 14 hot meals a week, as well as unlimited hot drinks weekly. Add the Gold Eating Plan to your self-catered accommodation and know that you are covered for your main meal every day, with the added convenience of being able to grab a drink whilst you are out and about on campus.
Silver 7 Eating Plan: The Silver Eating Plan includes a credit covering seven meals that can be used at a select number of bars and dining outlets across campus, as well as giving you seven hot drink credits per week and up to 50% off food. Even better, your credit and hot drink credits roll over each week, so if you are away for a few days, you will be able to use your credits at a later date. This eating plan is not included in any of our catered room types but is a great add-on option for self-catered students. This plan costs £35.07 a week.
Bronze 3 Eating Plan: This plan covers meal meals and five hot drinks at a cost of £16.80.
Our catered halls offer a choice between en-suite rooms and traditional rooms with shared bathrooms. You will also find small kitchenettes to prepare snacks and small meals.
