Heat your own food

Important update about this service

Please note that the 'Heat your own food' facilities are currently unavailable. We will update this page when the service is able to operate again.

If you bring your own food in from home, we provide several heat your own food facilities across campus for staff and students.

The facilities are free to use so you can enjoy your hot home cooked lunch, or reheat the joys of last night's takeaway. Each space is provided with cleaning materials and bins.
