The new Sustainability Cafe, located on the first floor of The Stannery food and drink extension, will open in September and include, food, drinks and views of the surrounding area and sea.

The cafe will look to use local suppliers for its food and drinks offerings, as well as showcase sustainability projects getting underway from students within the campus itself.

Construction of the new cafe was also done with sustainability in mind, using upcycled materials from discarded ocean plastic for furniture fabric as well as timber certified by the Forest Stewardship council.

In a statement announcing the opening on its social media page, Food & Drink, The Stannery said: "Introducing your new Sustainable Café! On the first floor in the Stannary extension, you’ll find a new Café with spectacular views across the surrounding area and to the sea.
