News: Stu­dent Meal Allowance updated

Please note: This news story may contain information that is no longer current or up to date.

As our stu­dents return to col­lege after the East­er break, many more will now be able to take advan­tage of an increased pro­vi­sion of free school meals, with a £3.50 meal allowance each day stu­dents are in col­lege to spend in the col­lege café.

This increase is due to us broad­en­ing the range of eli­gi­ble stu­dents to include those who receive dis­cre­tionary finan­cial sup­port — i.e. trav­el pass/​materials/​childcare etc. A stu­den­t’s allowance depends upon indi­vid­ual cir­cum­stances and age , and they may receive £3.50 per day or a set award per term. 

Stu­dents should check their email (personal/​college) to see if they have received an award! 

This should go a long way to help­ing addi­tion­al stu­dents who may be strug­gling financially. 

For more information/​terms & con­di­tions, stu­dents should check Stu­dent­Net or see the posters in refectories.

Once con­firmed, the allowance will be acces­si­ble through a stu­dents ID card, and stu­dents just need to present their ID card at the café till. Stu­dents can use the enti­tle­ment over a num­ber of meals in the day, and there are great meal options avail­able from break­fast through to lunch, hot and cold. If the allowance is not redeemed at the end of the day then it will not roll over onto the next day.
