Presenting Rialto - ideal for a quick bite to eat

Posted on 18/11/2011

On campus and hungry for a quick bite to eat? Or maybe you’re just looking for somewhere that’s comfortable to work in for a few hours?

If so, then Rialto is the space for you!

Located on the first floor of the Students’ Union and open from 11am to 3pm every day, Rialto serves up a range of sandwiches, pasta, baked pastries, freshly squeezed orange juice, crisps and sweeter items like homemade cakes, cookies, and drinks.

Need a quick jolt of coffee? We have fairtrade coffee on sale for £1 and you can add a piece of that homemade cake to it for our coffee and cake deal of just £2.

Want something more filling? Pasta Pronto is our newest addition to Rialto with lovely warm pots of pasta covered in a choice of sauces with a range of meat-eater or vegetarian options all for £2.50.

Or try our hotdogs, which you can smother in ketchup and mustard for a winter warmer on these colder days – only £2.00!

Having a busy day? Then why not pick up a ‘grab bag’ of 3 mini pasties or sausage rolls to eat on the move.

Even if you just need somewhere to study? Rialto is fully Wi-Fi covered enabling you to sit and work all day without the crowding of the library, and whilst you’re studying if you look up at the SUBtv screens you’ll see adverts for all our events and campaigns throughout the term so you’ll be aware of all the great things that the Students’ Union has coming up.

If you are into acoustic music or want to play to a smaller audience then why not come and organise to play in Rialto during the day? We’d love to hear you!

Rialto is a versatile space so if you want to perform lunchtime lectures, evening debates, hold a social study group or even using the space for a swap shop then get in touch – e-mail

and we’ll make it happen.

From Monday 21st November, sampling, promotions and introductory offers available!

Coming soon……

If you’re a fan of Insanity Radio (our award winning radio station) then you’ll be happy to hear that we will soon be broadcasting Insanity into Rialto so you’ll be able to make the most of student radio and all the competitions they run.

Rialto – it does everything U need.
