We are spoilt for choice when it comes to good food and great coffee. We have several cafés located on campus providing a wide variety of healthy and delicious options, ranging from a simple snack to a hearty meal.
Okeover Community Garden provides a quiet space to take time out from work or study. Anyone is welcome to wander through and enjoy the garden, or you can get more involved by becoming a volunteer.
