If you don't want the worry of cooking your own meals, putting money aside to pay for them, eating alone and washing up, why don't you try catered accommodation?
Catered Accommodation offers a fresh, healthy, good quality food option for students living on campus. Breakfast and dinner is prepared for you every morning and night during term time, with themed food nights including Chinese, Indian, Greek and Thai. Catered Accommodation is a great way to meet people, and avoid all the hassle of burnt toast and washing up! You can also save up to £850 a year on your food bill, based on the average cost of breakfast and dinner during term time.
