Coffee Shop ~ Optometry and Vision Sciences ~ Closure

The Coffee Shop will not re-open for session 2015/16 and we apologies for any disappointment and inconvenience this decision may cause.

The University / Campus Facilities recently undertook at extensive review of catering services. That review considered the style of catering services we should offer for the future and where catering services should be best located across the changing and expanding University campus. There is also a requirement to ensure our catering services are cost efficient and commercially viable.

We hope that you will continue to support the University catering services and your nearest Coffee Shop is located next door in the Hadyn Ellis Building. We will be reviewing the services provided in the Hadyn Ellis Building Coffee Shop during session 2015/16 and we will keep you informed about any improvements.

Campus Facilities and the School of Optometry and Vision Sciences are liaising further regarding the provision of drinks / snacks vending services in the entrance foyer and also about the future use of the vacated space. The tables, chairs and sofas will remain in the foyer area for staff, student and visitor use.

Thank you for your previous custom at the Coffee Shop and we look forward to seeing you in the Hadyn Ellis Building Coffee Shop.
