When moving to a different country, we know it's important to be able to still have the foods you love from home. With over 1,200 international students on campus, the University tries to provide food that everyone can enjoy.
Missing your mum's massaman curry? Don't worry, if you can't find the food you love on campus, the INTO team will help you find it locally. When you want to stock up on groceries and food shopping, there's an Asian supermarket and halal supermarkets just a 20-25 minute walk from the INTO Centre.
When you finish class, you won't have to go far to find refreshment. The INTO Centre has its own cafe - The Cafe Carberry. Here you can stop and refuel with toasties, soups and sandwiches, and the cafe serves halal meat and Asian noodles.
Where can I eat on campus?
There are three restaurants on campus.
The Speakeasy kitchen in the Student Union building serves drinks and meals throughout the day and evening. Fill up on pub classics like burger and chips or opt for a lighter soup, sandwich or salad. With TVs, snooker and pool tables and darts on offer, it's a great place to socialise with friends.
The Kitchen café (on the ground floor of the Student Union building, beside The Lounge) is filled with plenty of microwaves so you can bring and prepare your breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks!
The largest restaurant on campus is Relish, which serves noodle dishes, curry and pizza. If you're looking for something a little different, try Acapulco. It's a colourful Mexican restaurant where you can enjoy street-food classics like burritos and tacos.
Vegetarian? No problem, you'll find veggie options available in all the catering outlets on campus.
Where can I get a coffee?
When you’re looking for somewhere to relax with a coffee, you’ll have plenty of choice at Queen’s.
Located in the McClay Library, the Hope Café provides a welcome respite from studying, serving delicious breakfasts, lunch dishes and snacks in a light and airy space. You’ll love the mouth-watering specials, and their freshly-prepared sandwiches and salads are available to take away for lunch on-the-go.
With branches at Queen’s Sport PEC, the Medical Biology Centre and the Student’s Union, Clements are – as they say themselves – ‘religious about coffee’. Specialising in sourcing only the finest coffee, Clements aim for full traceability to origin, farm and farmer wherever possible.
You’ll find Café Carberry at the INTO Study Centre, so it’s perfect for grabbing a drink or snack between lessons. Their menu features a range of fairtrade tea and coffee, along with breakfast and lunch dishes including toasties, soups and sandwiches.
