The Aston Meal Plan

The 2019/20 Aston Meal Plan allows you to pay for your food and drinks at the start of the Academic Year in September, or at the start of each term. We automatically spread the money out over the whole term/year for you, so you'll always have money budgeted to eat on campus.

  • Booking now open for full academic year meal plans and individual terms
  • Pay a fixed amount, up front, by 24th September 2019 and for term two we’ll require payment by Friday 10th January, and we'll do the rest. If you would like to start a few weeks into term please contact the catering department and we will work out costs accordingly.
  • Payment now available online
  • £43.00 is automatically added to your student ID card, each week, to purchase food and drink in the catering outlets on campus, Monday to Friday at a time to suit you
  • If you don't manage to spend the full weekly amount, it will not carry over to the following week
  • £43.00 is based on allowing £8.60 per day, Monday to Friday
  • It's a great way to budget and means you're guaranteed money for food, right up until the last day of the year or term
  • You can't withdraw the money as cash or use it for alcohol, so it's great peace of mind for parents

By booking online, you agree to the Terms and Conditions surrounding the Aston Meal Plans.
