    Blackheath Lane catering facilities

      Hello At a recent Student/Staff Liaison meeting held at BHL we discuss the issue around the meal provider facilities. At Stoke (understandably as there are more students) there is a lot more choice and the cost is reflected because of the competition with meal deal prices being around £3 to £4 pounds. At BHL however a sandwich alone costs the lower end of this price scale at about £2.75, a coffee / tea is about £1.65 and a cold drink is anything from £1.40. An additional snack (crisps, chocolate etc) is another 80p or more, and the only other option is the 'set meal' which is £4.25 on its own (with the cost of a drink on top as extra). In our meeting we discussed the possibility of a subsidised meal allowance to bring this cost down for students who are based at Stafford to better reflect a consistent price scale across all campus's.
