Plant-based food

Lancaster University is committed to improving the availability and range of plant-based food options available across campus. Our recently updated Pendle Brew bar is now 100% vegetarian and vegan, and HIVE café has many vegan and low-sugar options.

We're committed to making free drinking water accessible for students and staff and we have a number of water fountains across campus. By adding more fountains, we are hoping to reduce single-use plastic on campus.
