How it works
You will receive your food allowance in three instalments in
line with the start of each term. It’s up to you how you spend that money, but
on average you will have a weekly allowance of £38.50 to spend on food. You’ll
gain valuable experience in how to budget to make your money last, but if you
do run out you’ll still have the option of adding money to your account.
It will be easy for you to keep track of the money you spend
with our Meal Plan app, and with the ability to automatically top-up your card,
there’s no need to carry cash around. Other features on the app will allow you
to pre-order food for collection in selected outlets, top up your food
allowance and book your place on residence life events. Your parent/ guardian
can even top-up your allowance from home!
