About Arts PiazzaArts Piazza logo

Arts Piazza is the University’s specialist coffee outlet, with a focus on barista-quality hot drinks and complementary treats.

This cafe has a range of toasties and paninis ready to be heated up and served to eat in or take away.

Arts Piazza sees a mix of students, staff and visitors looking to socialise and relax between working.

It uses a socially responsible coffee product, where part of the profit goes to saving orangutans in Sumatra.
