PAY with UPAY
ALL OF OUR OUTLETS HAVE NOW GONE CASHLESS. THE ONLY WAY TO PAY IS EITHER VIA OUR UPAY APP OR OTHER CONTACTLESS PAYMENT METHODS.
UPAY is the quick payment system used across campus that enables staff and students to pay for their food, drink and retail purchases. The only requirement is that you are either a staff member or a student studying at the University of Leicester.
