Flex Catering Package

Benefit from savings of 40% on your food bill by taking advantage of our Flex Catering Package.

Open to all students that live on or off campus, our catering package offers an enormous amount of flexibility as well as a huge discount by paying in advance.

The price is £610.00 for the rest of the academic year (the full price would be £1,024). Students will get a food and drink allowance of £8 each day, but with this deal you would have only actually paid £4.77 a day.

Where on campus can you use it?

You will be allocated £8 a day for food and drink and you can choose when and where you would like to eat on campus.

The outlets you can choose from and the opening times of those outlets are:

  • Rutherford Dining Hall - breakfast: 08:00 - 9:30 / lunch: 12:00 - 13:45 / dinner: 17:30 - 19:30
  • Bag It - 10:00 - 15:30
  • Origins - 12:00 - 21:00
  • Mungo’s - 12:00 - 18:30
  • Hut 8 - 12:00 - 00:00 Monday to Friday/ 17:00 - 00:00 Saturday and Sunday
  • Create: 09:00 - 17:00
  • KBS Servery: 09:30 - 15:30
  • Sports Café: 09:30 - 17:00
  • K-Bar: 12:00 – 21:30

How it works?

You will have a meal allocation of £8 each day. This will be added to your student ID card (KentOne card) each day as two £4 tokens. You can decide if you would like to put the full £8 allowance towards one substantial meal, or if you would prefer to split it into two x £4 tokens and have two smaller meals instead.

If you would like to have two smaller meals, you need to make sure that the cost of the first meal doesn’t exceed the first £4 token. That will leave the other £4 token remaining on their card for use later that day. If however you spend over £4 on your first meal that day (for example £4.25) it will eat into the other £4 token and that will be classed as having been ‘used’ as well, so you won’t have any remaining for that day. You can speak to the staff at the till and pay any difference yourself, for example if it cost £4.25 you could ask to use one token and then pay the 25p in cash. This would leave your other £4 token untouched for later use.

At the till you simply hand over your KentOne card and it will automatically register that you have the package and your allowance will be deducted. If the dish you would like is over £8, you need to pay the difference.
