Meals and Catering Credits
The compulsory catering credit is returned to you in the form of meal credits. Additional meal credits can be purchased via UPay. Credits may be carried over from term to term but not to the following academic year. During the Easter vacation and Trinity Term unused meal credits may be sold/transferred to other St Hilda's students. All unused credits as of 31 July are wiped from the cards. Meal credits are not refundable.
Compulsory meal credits are charged as follows:
Undergraduates living on site - £170 per term
Undergraduates living out in College owned properties - £125 per term
Graduates and undergraduates living out in privately owned properties - £70 per term
There are also kitchens around College, some with a microwave only, some with hobs only and some with hobs and ovens. For a quick snack, the Dining Hall is open between meals. In the Buttery (or College snack bar), located in the Junior Common Room, you can buy toasties, bagels, crisps, chocolate, sweets and hot and cold drinks.
