Food and drink
Reid is catered, pay-as-you-go. This means that you won’t have access to a kitchen to cook your own meals but you’ll be able to buy all your meals from Founder’s dining hall at a discounted rate of approximately 50%. The 50% discount only applies to Founder’s dining hall, but you’ll also have the choice of eating in a range of other cafés and dining halls on campus and if you pay using your College Card you’ll receive a 20% discount off your food.
Our dining halls cater for all dietary requirements (e.g. vegan and halal). If there isn't an option to suit you on the menu, you just speak to a member of staff at the food counter and the cooks will make you something fresh.
Even though this Hall is catered pay-as-you-go, you’ll have access to pantry. Pantries are a kitchen type area designed for you to make drinks and light snacks and are shared by the students in your house.
- small work surface and sink
- kettle and toaster
- larder refrigerator
You need to bring:
- plates and bowls
- cutlery and other utensils
- washing-up materials and tea towels
The pantries are cleaned daily between Monday and Friday, but it’s also your responsibility to keep the shared areas clean and tidy.
Can I bring my car?
No, you can’t bring your car with you to your Halls of Residence. You can bring your car to campus for up to one hour, but if you stay any longer you’ll get a parking fine.
All mail arrives at the Main College Post Room and is distributed to the appropriate Halls of Residence within 24 hours. In Reid, letters you receive will be placed in the pigeon holes outside the Hub post room for collection. If you receive a parcel or item needing a signature, we’ll email you to let you know that it’s arrived and is ready for collection from the reception desk. Remember to bring valid ID when you come to collect your mail.
Don’t forget to use your full name, Hall address and room number when giving your address for a delivery. We have a lot of incoming and outgoing mail at the College and without this information your mail might get lost.
