DailyBites will sort you out

You’ll get £28 loaded on to your student ID card every week, which you can spend on food and soft drinks whenever and wherever our participating locations are open. As a bonus, you only pay £26.30 – that’s a discount of over 6%!

Something for everyone

If you’re a student living in catered halls, you don’t need to do anything – your DailyBites package is included in your contract. 

If you’re a student living elsewhere, we haven’t forgotten you. Buy a 1-week package as a short-term treat, a 1-term package if you know you’ve got a busy time ahead of you, or a full academic year package if you love to be organised. You could even buy a few 1-week packages to run one after the other, perfect for getting you through a hectic exam period. 

Whatever you choose, just sign up here. We’ll let you know as soon as your money is on your card.

Not a student, but know someone who is? No problem. You can buy DailyBites packages on behalf of any student at the university, and we’ll make sure they’re well-fed. 

With over 30 brilliant bars, cafes, shops and restaurants across University Park and Jubilee Campus, there’s something to suit everyone’s tastes. If you’ve got special dietary requirements, check out our menus, speak to one of the catering team, or email us if you can’t find the information you’re looking for. 

Ready when you are

Whether you’re an early bird or a night owl, you’ll have plenty of time to grab the food you want, when you want it.

Your DailyBites balance rolls over during the week, and resets every Sunday at midnight. Be careful at the end of term – every DailyBites package is term-time only, and some locations do close or reduce their weekend opening hours. Keep an eye on opening times here and on the Students’ Union website, and look out for signs posted in your favourite cafes.
