The College is making some changes to how and where some services are provided on campus. The changes are being made to enable reinvestment elsewhere as part of our continuing commitment to an excellent student and staff experience.
The Campus Services team aims to provide the best possible service and experience for our staff and student community, through everything from catering outlets and hospitality services, to sports facilities, student accommodation, the Student Hub, and Early Years provision.
These services operate at a loss – they are subsidised by millions of pounds a year to try and keep prices cheaper than the high street. College therefore regularly looks for ways to offset those costs, where services are under-used or not cost-effective. Only changes which clearly enable reinvestment to the wider benefit of the community, against a minimal impact on staff and students, are considered.
The new changes being introduced mainly consist of shorter opening hours for some outlets, and reducing some cooked meal options. Some of the changes have already taken place, while others will be coming in over July and August.
