Providing more value on campus

21st Sep 2023 | By Leicester Services Partnership

We have been working hard to keep prices as low as possible and continue to provide value for money on food and drink across campus especially in the current cost-of-living crisis affecting everyone. Our work includes discussion with both the Students’ Union and University through engagement groups, data and feedback.

In an attempt to counteract the huge price rises nationally; on food and non-alcoholic beverages, higher energy bills forcing producers to hike prices on everyday staples such as milk, eggs and bread which influence costs at all stages of food production and distribution, we are absorbing some of that cost, so you can still benefit from a variety of value everyday items across campus. 


Great value items include your £3.85 meal deal. It’s been upgraded, and now includes a hot main item as well as customers most popular sandwiches and wraps, with vegan, vegetarian and halal options available.

Combining your main item with a piece of fruit and choose between a packet of Walkers crisps or any 330ml canned drink, fruit juice carton or 500ml bottle of water, you have the perfect complete meal deal offer. 

Boost your meal deal saving by paying for it using your UPAY loyalty reward, because with each £1+ purchase, you get rewarded with 5% back in loyalty points. Not only that, you will also be able to benefit from upcoming exclusive UPAY loyalty offers.
