24/05/21 Update: Continuing to support the efforts of providing for the safety and wellbeing of the University community, most of these venues remain closed at the moment. However, we're delighted to announce that the Hardback Cafe at Sir Duncan Rice Library and the Tiki Cafe at Suttie are currently open. This position will be reviewed on a weekly basis with updates detailing any changes displayed under each outlet heading as set out below.
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.
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!
