It would be really great if within the canteen/food area's there was a self service section with a mircowave or two, that students could use to reheat food from home. This would be especially beneficial to students who live off campus to help save money and to maintain a healthy or restricted diet.


Community & Partnership Officer was requested to find out why microwaves would be advantageous. The Panel provided the following feedback:

  • Some students have specific dietary requirements, not catered for by outlets.
  • Some students commute and it would be easier for them to have access to a microwave to cook their own food, whenever they needed it.
  • Some students only have short lunch breaks.
  • Good for students who are studying out of canteen hours, for example in 24 hrs rooms.
  • Helpful for students on a tight budget who cannot afford to purchase food from the canteen every day.

​The new Community & Partnership Officer, Hannah Price, will continue discussions with the University in the new Academic year.
