The University of Oxford has appointed Compass Group UK & Ireland to provide catering and a range of hospitality services.


This new contract will see investment in the student, staff and visitor environment. Catering destinations will be renovated to create social hubs that provide inviting as well as practical meeting points and deliver a wide range of unique food and drinks.

 

There will be a focus on sustainable sourcing and healthy eating, designed to meet the requirements of different departments and locations. 

 

Compass will provide catering and hospitality services at 23 different locations at the university.

 

Three bespoke brands – Beyond Ordinary Food at Oxford, Occasions at Oxford and Only at Oxford – will be introduced as key themes that will run throughout the different cafés, restaurants and hospitality services.

 

Liz Kitchener, head of strategic facilities management, University of Oxford, said: “The contract will deliver significant service, sustainability, financial, and compliance benefits. It will enable our customers to have a catering offering that has its own identity and character, recognising that one size does not fit all, while at the same time reflecting the first-class quality synonymous with the University of Oxford.”
