Did you know?

The rules on VAT mean that students are exempt from paying VAT on hot food, which is why there are separate prices for students and non-students. The University is therefore not offering a discount to students that they are not offering to staff, but simply following the VAT rules in not charging students VAT on hot food.

Meal Deal

The meal deal operates in all our Market Place shops and contains:

  • A sandwich
  • Crisps, popcorn or fruit
  • A 500ml drink
