About Arts Piazza

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

In the morning you’ll find freshly made filled breakfast croissants and muffins, and throughout the day there’s a range of toasties and paninis ready to be heated up and served to eat in or take away. You’ll also find packaged sandwiches, salads, crisps, bakery items and more.

The café takes part in the Coffee for Causes scheme. Each term, a new socially responsible coffee is introduced, with part of the profits made from each cup that’s sold going towards a charitable cause. These include Café Queero, Redemption and Blend 53.

You’ll always find a mix of students, staff and visitors relaxing in between their work. A great place to take a break or catch up with friends.
