Freedom at Lancaster University

If budgeting or cooking isn’t your thing, and you’d like great-tasting, convenient food then you might want to consider Freedom, our new pre-paid student dining scheme. Available in multiple outlets across campus (The Marketplace, Barker House Farm, The Deli, Fylde Bar and Grizedale Bar), signing up to Freedom means that you’re entitled to breakfast and either lunch or dinner in any of these venues at any time Monday-Friday. If you live on campus, you can extend this to include weekends with Freedom+.

As well as the wide variety of food on offer (from fresh salads and vegetarian meals to deluxe burgers and burritos) and the convenience of being close to a Freedom outlet wherever you are on campus – being part of the scheme also offers significant savings of up to 50% on your food and drink, saving you valuable time and money throughout the course of your studies.

Your Freedom or Freedom+ membership is loaded onto your University Card that you can use to conveniently pay for all of your meals in any of the participating outlets. There will always be a vegetarian option available, and vegan meals can be arranged by request.
