Flex Catering Package (January 2023 - June 2023)

FLEX Catering Package logo



The Flex Catering Package is available to all Kent students, living on and off campus. It’s a flexible way to eat that allows you to concentrate on your studies and enjoy university life - without the hassle of shopping, cooking, and washing up.

It allows you to prepay for your meals in advance and save up to 50% on food and drink over the course of the year.

Students with a Flex Catering Package receive £12 a day, every day, to spend in the cafes, restaurants, and bars on campus.


Detailed Description

The Flex Catering Package allowance can be used in any of the 12 participating restaurants, bars, and cafés on campus.

The £12 allowance is split into two £6 tokens which can be used separately (for two smaller meals), or at the same time (for one larger, more substantial meal). This gives you the freedom to choose whatever you want to eat, whenever you want to eat it.

• Rutherford Dining Hall: A traditional canteen serving home cooked food at affordable prices. The menu changes daily, meaning you have a different meat, fish, and plant-based option to choose from every day.

• Bag It: A customisable sandwich service. Create your very own personalised sandwich, sub, bagel, or jacket potato for the ultimate lunch experience! Barista coffee, cold drinks, and a selection of snacks are also available to purchase.

• Origins: It’s time to get competitive! Origins is your old-school campus bar with a gaming twist. From shuffleboard to interactive darts, Origins is an ideal “student playground” perfect for societies and sports teams. Fuel up pre or postgame on loaded nachos, mac ‘n’ cheese, wings, and desserts.

• Dolche Vita: An international style restaurant serving a variety of fusion dishes. Dishes include katsu curry, beef ragu, tandoori chicken, and salads. Barista coffee, cold drinks, sandwiches, cakes, and snacks are also available to purchase.

• Hut 8: A fast-food style restaurant situated in Turing College. The menu features homemade pizzas, mouth-watering burgers, fried chicken, wraps, and salads. It’s the perfect place to hang out with friends, grab a bite to eat, and have a game of pool or table tennis.

• Create: A small café in Marlowe building serving a selection of hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, pastries, and snacks. It’s a great place to pick up a coffee before heading off to a lecture or study session at the library.

• Mungo’s: Renowned for its American Diner style menu, Mungo’s dishes include pancakes, milkshakes, sundaes, burgers, wraps, and grilled cheese sandwiches. Grab a bargain every Tuesday with their burger and drink deal.

• The Street Kitchen: For feel-good food on-the-go, check out The Street Kitchen. This street food van has a different menu each week, featuring flavoursome food at affordable prices. Street food dishes have included flatbreads, tacos, burgers, and curries.

• K-Bar: A centrally located campus bar, perfect for relaxing with friends in the evening or between lectures. The bar stocks a variety of premium lagers, craft ales, wines, and liquors. But if alcohol isn’t your thing, a selection of soft drinks, smoothies, mocktails, and hot drinks are also available.

• Sibson Café: Bright and airy, Sibson Café is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a coffee while taking in the beautiful green surroundings. The café serves hot and cold drinks, plus a delicious range of sandwiches, toasties, light meals, snacks, and cakes.

• Gulbenkian Café: The Gulbenkian Arts Centre Café is all about delicious, locally sourced homemade food, great coffee, and good vibes.
