Students and staff can enjoy some new menus designed to suit all tastes from various on-campus food outlets run by the University’s caterers, Chartwells.

They’ve been working over the summer to introduce fresh new menus and ensuring you can order and enjoy your food in a Covid secure way.

The food counters in Eat Central will be offering a new and improved menu which features some delicious new concepts, including Hollo Pollo – Peruvian chicken, Bamboo – Pan Asian, new Chinese, Thai, Middle Eastern menus and Miami Burgers. A new kitchen van will be providing tasty take-away breakfasts and lunches whilst keeping things fresh with a new menu every week.

Below is a list of the food venues on campus that will be open from the beginning of term and their opening times:

  • EAT Central will be open Monday to Friday - 8am to 6pm and Saturday and Sunday - 9am to 4pm
  • The Arts Café will open Monday to Friday - open 8am to 5.30pm
  • A newly branded Kitchen Van will be positioned in Library Square Monday - Friday from 10am to 5:30pm

  • “Chick n Pea” Van will be open Monday to Friday from 12pm to 8pm. 

Helen Power-Hosking, Head of Commercial Services said:

“Our new catering options offer students and staff some new food options and easier ways of getting the food they want in the ways they want it – like our click and collect services, ordering on the Time2Eat app, picking up a takeaway, eating a meal in our venues like Eat Central. For those who enjoy cooking their own meals we’ll be offering subscriptions to Fresh food meal kits.”

Staff and students are encouraged to download the free Time2Eat app from the Android or Apple store and then enter “sussex” to enjoy all of its features.
