    EPOS top-up - cashless tills

    Murray Edwards College operates a cashless till system. Students are encouraged to pay money into individual Student Debit Card accounts, which can then be used via the student's ID card, to pay for meals in the Dome dining hall. By using the cashless system, you receive a 10% discount on the cash price of meals. You can also use your account to buy stamps, telephone cards or memorabilia at the Porters' Lodge, or use online when booking a meal at Formal Hall.

    Catering team

    The kitchen team is led by Chef Joe Dean, who worked previously as Head Chef at the Hotel du Vin. His team have a variety of experience and produce an extremely high standard of food from cafeteria to fine dining.

    The kitchens can cater for most dietary requirements, provided they are informed in advance. Food is sourced from sustainable sources and local suppliers, where possible.

    The front of house team is led by Teri Byrne. Her skills make for a smooth catering experience, whether you’re in cafeteria or at a formal meal.
