Where to eat or drink

If you're on a catered package, you'll be able to enjoy food created by our award-winning Executive Head Chef. If you're going self-catered, don't worry, Leicester has some excellent restaurants and bars for you to enjoy.

For delegates on catered packages 

We are committed to catering for those with specific dietary requirements, and we were very proud to become the first UK university to receive Coeliac UK accreditation in 2013. We also cater for other diets, including vegan and dairy-free. If you have any specific requirements, please speak to your event organiser and we will do everything we can to accommodate your needs.

Menus will be displayed for each meal service, but should you have any concerns speak with a member of our hospitality team who will be happy to help. 

For delegates on self catered packages               

If you're based at our City Hub Suites, you'll be able to eat at a number of University food outlets, from our excellent 1st Floor restaurant in the Charles Wilson building, to our farm shop, delic!ous, also in the Charles Wilson Building. We are one of very few universities to have a 100% vegetarian cafe, in the form of Cafe Piazza, again in the Charles Wilson Building, or if you want to dine in academic surroundings, our Library Cafe sells Lavazza coffee and a range of sandwiches, wraps, paninis and other snacks.

If you want to venture further afield, there are a large number of restaurants, cafes and bars in the city centre, which is roughly a twenty minute walk from campus. If you're based at Oadby, it's a bit further (around two miles) but there are regular buses or we can provide you with the numbers of taxi firms.
