Eat, drink and shop

If you're grabbing a sandwich between lectures, meeting friends for a coffee or going out for a meal, there are plenty of places to eat on campus. Or try Cargo, just ten minutes' walk away, and right next to Liberty Quays.

No1 - Choose a smoothie or our mega breakfast, coffee or herbal tea, and for lunch burgers, pasta, a quick sandwich, or one of our many veggie options.

The Deep End - Part of our Student Hub, The Deep End offers an international menu – goulash, paella and curry, as well as the unique 'Dive in' burgers, and focaccia-based pizzas. There's also Starbucks coffee.

The Galvanising Shop Café - Based on the Historic Dockyard site, The Galvanising Shop Café likes to refresh its menu regularly but always has toasted sandwiches, great coffee and lots of sweet treats.

Venue café - This large café in the Pilkington Building serves freshly made salads, sandwiches, as well as hot meals and is a great place to meet friends between lectures.
