What’s included?

Our catered offer at Stephenson includes three meals a day, from Monday to Friday, during term time. That means you don’t have to devote brain space to menu planning when you’re studying. In fact, you don’t even have to plan where you’ll eat. Grab breakfast at the Village Store, and lunch can be at any of the 17 cafes throughout the day, and then back for dinner at The Edge Hub in Endcliffe.
