Shop, save and sustain


As part of our sustainability policy, we have been looking into ways we can reduce food waste on campus. The new shop, save and sustain scheme tries to tackle this, whilst giving customers a chance to purchase food at discounted rates! 

Hot meals

10 minutes before lunch service ends, in outlets that offer a hot lunch service, all hot main meals will be discounted by 50%.

For hot meals, if you wish to take your food away you will need to bring your own container.

Each outlet's discount time will depend on their opening hours.

Outlets included in hot meal discounts: Piazza Restaurant, Roger Kirk Centre & Vanbrugh.


Other items

10 minutes before the outlet closes, a select amount of ambient / chilled food will be discounted by 50%.

The items discounted will be displayed clearly, and only these items will be discounted.

The items will be food that is due to go out of date and cannot be kept, damaged items and any other items that would otherwise become waste.

The discount time period will be 10 minutes before the outlet's closing time.

Outlets  included: Piazza Starbucks, Hub Cafe, Library Cafe, Vanbrugh Cafe, Derwent Cafe, RKC Costa and Park Central.
