New ‘hot and hearty’ food offer

Staff and students have told us they want cheaper hot food on campus and as part of the University’s commitment to providing more choice and variety, Warwick Retail are pleased to announce a new hot food offer launching 6 January 2020.

NAIC Café will serve two hot food dishes (vegetarian and meat) every evening from 5.00 – 6.30pm. The dishes, at £3.00 each, will include ‘home comfort favourites’ such as chilli, lasagne and macaroni cheese and are available to eat in or take away.

To help reduce waste and create a more sustainable environment we are encouraging everyone to bring their own takeaway boxes or crockery.

Exciting changes to enhance shopping and eating and drinking experience on campus

Warwick Retail is delighted to announce the opening of a new café, pop-up bookshop and upgraded tills in Rootes Grocery Store.

‘Aroma’ by the Nero Roasting Company will open on Westwood Campus on Monday 16 September and will serve espresso based coffee and deli-style unwrapped sandwiches which include vegan, gluten free and organic options. Customers can also take advantage of Aroma’s loyalty scheme which offers a free coffee with any food purchase and a 4th free drink.

Premium European coffee house, Caffè Nero, opened at the Sports and Wellness Hub on 5 August and serves espresso based speciality coffee, a premium Deli food range including salads, Italian deli sandwiches and an extensive vegetarian and vegan range.

As Aroma and Caffè Nero both operate their own loyalty schemes, the Eating at Warwick and University Charge cards cannot be used in these outlets. Further details on the Retail website including opening times

Following the closure of the Bookshop on 24 July, the University’s online academic book service and pop-up bookshop is now operated by Blackwell’s, the UK’s largest academic bookseller. Blackwell’s pop-up bookshop will open for five weeks in Warwick Arts Centre from 23 September – 25 October supplying students with all the books they need for term 1. You can find out more about our partnership with Blackwell’s and details of the benefits you can enjoy.

As part of Warwick Retail’s plan to enhance and improve customers’ shopping and experience, Rootes Grocery Store now boasts 15 checkouts, 12 of which are self-service (an increase of 6 self-service tills). The new tills accept debit and credit cards, Contactless, Android and Apple Pay.

Work has also started on a new Pret a Manger outlet coming soon to the centre of campus – more information and an opening date to follow.
