Food allergies and intolerances

We already cater for students with various food allergies, intolerances and religious beliefs, so it is important that our students let us know about any allergies or intolerances etc. that they may have so that our catering team can advise them on their meal choice.

All of our allergen information is available on-site to comply with the EU Food Information for Consumers Regulations launched in December 2014 and all of our catering team have undergone training to incorporate this legislation.
