The University Centre

 

Departments may wish to provide refreshments for a variety of meetings or functions, ranging from tea and biscuits through to a full meal. To the right you can find a list of downloadable guidance leaflets to support you in doing this. 

Course dates for food safety courses can be found here.

Purchasing Information

Our purchasing team is involved in tendering food contracts at local, regional and national level. By combining purchasing power with other Colleges, we are able to compete favourably with large, contract caterers without losing the ability to purchase some products locally. All of our contracts, including SUPC and TUCO, can be used by other University departments.
