Kitchens

The kitchens in our self-catered residences are equipped with a fridge, oven and microwave, along with a separate, lockable cupboard space for each resident. You will need to bring your own crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils, pots and pans, and washing-up items.

Catered residences have kitchenettes with a kettle, toaster, fridge and microwave. You can buy main meals at food outlets on campus using the meal credits that come with your accommodation package, which can be topped up as required.

Semi-catered accommodation packages provide a self-catered residence but include a number of meal credits for flexibility to grab a quick meal on the go.
