The University of Chester has a number of cafés and restaurants located on or near to the main campus, vending areas are also available where you can eat your own food. Please browse through the full range of facilities that we have to offer and see what you can look forward to when you visit one of our outlets on or off campus. 

We offer traditional meals as well as internationally inspired dishes and healthy options. The University is committed to healthy eating and high standards of food hygiene and has been awarded the ‘Chester & District Eat Well Award’ in recognition of this. The Catering department is Vegetarian Society and allergen accredited.

In addition to this the University has also been awarded ‘Fairtrade’ status, which is supported by our Sustainable Food Policy for continued commitment to good quality and, where possible, we endeavour to use locally sourced fresh ingredients. Warrington campus holds the ‘Warrington Food Award for Excellence’.

If you have something more specific in mind or if you are celebrating something special like a wedding, anniversary or special milestone birthday we also have Senate House and The Dining Rooms that are ideal venues for this. Should you wish to discuss this further, please contact a member of our Catering Services Team who will be happy to give advice on menus, costs and what is available.

Meal schemes are available for all students and are operated on a 5 day a week basis. The meal schemes have proved to be popular and gives students the opportunity to purchase discount meals in advance.
