The Aberdeen campus is lucky enough to have lots of cafes and food outlets, each with its own style, vibe and food selection - so you’re never too far away from a hot meal, refreshment or a quick snack! Whatever your budget, we've got you covered!

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about changes to the way we operate, in order to keep our staff and our customers safe. We're working with smaller teams and we're serving reduced menus over reduced hours until we are advised that it's safe to make alterations. We've still got lots of familiar menu items on offer and we've introduced social distancing measures to support your eating and shopping experiences. Signage will help to guide you around the facilities, auto dispensing hand sanitisers are positioned for your use and we've gone cashless to reduce the risk of contamination. By working together and following Government guidelines, we'll continue to offer great food, drink and retail in safe environments for all.

All outlets are listed below, have a look through to find out which you want to visit! The daily menus are updated from 11am Monday to Friday. For those unable to access the daily menus, please email campus.services@abdn.ac.uk.

For those who like to save money, Yoyo Wallet, the University's free loyalty and reward mobile app is the perfect place to source rewards, special offers and discounts which are automatically sent straight to your mobile phone, meaning you’ll always get more for your money.
