Living in a Catered Residence
Our catered residences offer a nutritional and well balanced menu plan. The food is prepared on site by Chartwells who have a strong focus and approach to fresh and seasonal food with natural and simply delicious flavours. The menu plan has been prepared factoring in feedback from students and the Chartwells smart food program
If you have specific needs, including vegetarian, coeliac and Halaal requirements, please let the residential staff know so that a meal plan can be tailored to these needs.
The Summer menu begins at the start of Semester 1 and the Winter menu begins at the start of Semester 2 and then transitions into the Spring menu. The menu offers two vegetarian dishes and half of these vegetarian dishes are suitable for vegans.
Three daily additional protein boost bars will be offered across lunch and dinner meal periods. Thursday dinners will have a different themed comfort style menu developed with residential input.
Frequently asked questions
I applied for a catered accommodation, but my offer is for a self-catered location - why?
The number of applications we receive for catered accommodation exceeds the number of places we have available. If we can't get you in to your first catered choice, we exhaust all other catered spaces available before we offer self-catered. Unfortunately, we can't meet everyone's requests. However we have an Applying to transfer to a different residence process for those who cannot be granted their preference.
