We offer three great Eating Plans to suit all lifestyles and accommodation types. They all offer the same great food that is designed to be healthy and nutritious and to help you succeed with your studies. You can upgrade any self-catered hall room with an Eating Plan as you apply for Halls or visit the Me@Reading portal to apply at any time.
Eating Plans are charged to your University bill, that you or a parent/guardian/sponsor can pay via guest payments. Our Silver entry level plan offers discounted meals at our largest sites and a free drink with any full meal. You are free to spend your weekly credit as you wish in the designated outlets on food (non-food & alcohol are among the few exclusions). This plan is included with rooms at St. Patrick’s Hall.
Our Gold Plan, popular with 2nd and 3rd Year students, offers a larger range of outlets to choose from, including Library Cafe, while continuing to offer freedom to spend as you wish and covering around 8 meals per week. An unlimited hot drinks package is included.
The most popular option, used by around two-thirds of the Clever Cuisine students, is our Platinum Plan. This covers all your meals each day as well as providing a free drinks package (you choose either soft or hot drinks each week) as well as the freedom to spend as you wish. This plan is included with rooms at Dunsden Crescent, Wantage and Windsor Halls.
All our plans can be used at Park Market, which is focussed on whole foods (think superfoods such as nuts, seeds, dried fruits and whole grains) so you can spend any unused credit on healthy and nutritious snacks, food and drinks. If you have any questions or need help choosing please contact us.
You can use your plan in a wide variety of outlets. Here are the outlets that participate in Clever Cuisine.
