Our Eating Plans

The Silver entry level plan offers discounted meals at our largest sites and seven coffee or soft drink credits each week. You are free to spend your weekly credit as you wish in the designated outlets on food (non-food & alcohol are among the few exclusions). This plan is included with rooms at St. Patrick’s Hall.

Our Gold Plan, popular with 2nd and 3rd Year students, offers a larger range of outlets to choose from, including Library Cafe, while continuing to offer freedom to spend as you wish and covering around 8 meals per week. An unlimited coffee or soft drinks package is included.

The most popular option, used by around two-thirds of the Clever Cuisine students, is our Platinum Plan. This covers all of your meals each day, as well as providing two free drinks package (unlimited coffee and soft drinks each week) as well as the freedom to spend as you wish. This plan is included with rooms at Dunsden Crescent, Wantage and Windsor Halls.

All our plans can be used at Park Market, which is focussed on whole foods (think superfoods such as nuts, seeds, dried fruits and whole grains) so you can spend any unused credit on healthy and nutritious snacks, food and drinks.

In our latest survey, 90% of students using Clever Cuisine say it makes their Life Easier and 79% say it positively impacts their student experience. See how our plans compare below;
