Food on campus – tell us what you think for your chance to win prizes

May 12th, 2021

Help us to improve the university’s food and drink offer by having your say about campus catering.

The survey, which takes about 10 minutes to complete, gives you the chance to give feedback about your experiences and any changes you would like to see.

It covers topics such as availability, price and range of food on offer as well customer service and facilities on-site and involves a number of outlets including in-halls catering.

The survey is available for completion until Friday 28 May 2021. The results will be collated and discussed by focus groups before being reviewed and implemented by the university’s catering teams.

By completing the survey you have the option to be added to a prize draw to win meal card credits or free coffee vouchers.

Hi, I would suggest taking a look at how Reading University organise their catering. They were featured on Radio 4 and it sounded brilliant. If Nottingham could organise something similar it would be amazing.

Disappointed to see that there is no space here for open ended comments on the survey. In my opinion, you are not always asking the right questions.
-I stopped buying any food on campus many years ago when we changed to using external catering suppliers (pre-packed, boring, overpackaged, overpriced food). Some variety and locally run facilities would be really welcome.
-Vegan food options have improved a lot- but still some way to go
-There has been a closure of all staff spaces suitable for hosting visitors and for socialising informally among research commmunities (staff and PGRs) since the decision was taken to turn the Helmsley into a Professional Services Hub. Covid has been damaging for staff morale anyway, but taking away one of the the few pleasant facilities that existed is another blow on top of everything else.

It is unfortunate that even in the survey there is no mention of African or Caribbean options in the cuisine list. I cannot complete the survey knowing my view cannot be well represented.
Thank you.
