The Student Shop

The Student Union shop has everything you need to keep you going.

And we've got more sandwiches than you can shake a stick at.

Your Student Union shop is conveniently located in the Hugh Nisbet Building - right next to Elements and The Advice Hub

Whether you need a pick up in between lectures or you've run out of bread in halls, the SU shop stops you from having to trek out to Asda or Sainsbury's.

Remember that every penny you spend in the shop goes back into your Student Union meaning your sandwich could fund things like providng the Advice Hub or societies! 

For lunchtime we have a delicious range of sandwiches, pastries, pastas and salads to fuel your studies. Our meal deal is great value for money and gives you a sandwich, crisps and a drink for between £2.49 and £3.29 (simple/premium range).
