Mansfield prides itself on the quality of its catering and most meals are cooked from fresh ingredients, locally sourced from high animal welfare suppliers, with the same menus available to students and academic and support staff.
A variably priced menu is available for all meals except Formal Hall. Choices will be offered so that a meal will always be available at affordable prices. The meal prices for 2023-24 are:

  • Lunch: £4.75
  • Dinner: £4.75

Payment for all meals except Formal Hall will be charged to battels (student accounts) using the University Card. Additional charges apply for the optional twice-weekly ‘Formal’ dinners (you sign up for these via the Student Hub) and these are charged direct to your battels.
