We are proud to be part of the Too Good To Go community.

Download the Too Good To Go app and get connected to our food outlets on campus that have unsold food surplus.

You can find the Refectory and many of our cafes on the Too Good To Go app, place an order and rescue a Magic Bag before closing time. Food offerings range from sandwiches to hot daily specials. You don’t know what you are going to get, but the bag of food costs 50% (or more!) less than the retail price.
