At Askham Bryan College we have a Refectory and Deli Bar which is open for the use of staff and students daily.  The food is prepared on the premises and we provide a full range of breakfasts, cakes, snacks, hot drinks, lunches, salad bar, healthy options and evening meals. Vegetarian options are always available and we cater for special diets, please just make us aware. 

Students who are living in College accommodation on a half board basis will have a combined ID and food card that will automatically be loaded with their food allowance on a weekly basis.

This can be used by the student to purchase their food on campus from the Refectory or Deli Bar and at other food outlets on site. You can also use cash to supplement the allowance if necessary. We encourage students to monitor the balance on their food cards and budget appropriately to avoid accruing large credits as any balance remaining on the food card at the end of term will not be refunded.

You may be eligible for an additional free meal entitlement if you or your parents receive benefits or allowances, please check the Financial Help pages for more information.
