Catering on campus is provided by a number of professional companies, all of which pride themselves on standards of excellence in food and service. There are a number of suberb locations for fine dining, from the Aula Maxima which dates back to 1845 to the stylish new Bailey Allen Hall which can cater for 500 guests for a gala banquet.
For day-to-day catering requirements associated with meetings, seminars and conferences, the University has appointed a panel of caterers, in addition to the campus based caterers, who will provide catering services on a regular basis, from early morning office meetings to lunch-time gatherings.
