Catering in Central Rooms

Please note catering is not allowed in the vast majority of central rooms. A full list of the centrally bookable spaces that permit catering can be found by vieiwng our room catalogue and clicking the "Food and Drink Permitted" tick box.

If you are ordering catering for an event, please remember to ensure that the rooms are left in an appropriate manner for all subsequent users.

Catering should only be ordered from:

Hospitality on Campus are the only caterers permitted to deliver to central teaching and meeting rooms(where catering is allowed), Whitworth Hall, Whitworth Corridor, the Council Chamber, and all bookable foyers.

Members of staff (individually or on behalf of their work unit) MUST NOT undertake any catering of their own. By doing so they will be putting themselves and the University at risk. Serious contraventions of food safety legislation can cause serious personal harm and can result in significant fines running into millions of pounds and imprisonment. This includes the purchase of food from supermarkets (chilled food or food for reheating), takeaways and caterers NOT on the nominated supplier list.

If you are unsure or have any queries please contact the Central Teaching Spaces team on x. 57305 (0161 275 7305) or
