Bristol University to offer £1 meals and free period goods to help students weather the cost of living crisis

This option is not available in the Senate market

The University of Bristol will be providing low-cost hot meals and free period goods to students on campus from Monday 7 November in a bid to help students through the cost of living crisis.

An email sent to students explains that soup and a roll will be available for £1 at all Source Cafés and the Balloon Bar in the Richmond Building, Monday to Friday. Vegan options for the soup will also be offered.

This option is not available in the Senate market and students must present a U card to prove their status as a student attending the university.

Cheaper food options are introduced and students can get a Source-on-the-Go £2 hot lunch “Cater pod” located outside the Balloon Bar in the Richmond Building, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Cheaper hot meals will also arrive at Stoke Bishop. Students can have a jacket potato and beans for £2 from Source Café at Hiatt Baker bus station, Monday to Saturday.

The University of Bristol has also announced that it will provide “free sustainable menstrual products in University and Bristol Student Union bathrooms at Clifton and Langford campuses”.

Students have previously expressed outrage at the support provided by the university about the cost of living crisis and said ‘that’s not good enough’.
