Coffee without the wait.

Need a quick caffeine fix before your next class? Or did you have to skip grabbing a coffee because you were running late? Our grab-and-go coffee shop at the entrance of the Learning & Teaching building is designed for speed and is run by the Union for the University Community.

We’re home to a selection of deals offering quality value options at the Union. Pick up a breakfast roll with a coffee or tea for only £2.50 until 11am, grab some 50p beans on toast and enjoy our £3.45 meal deal for the best value on campus. Common Ground is here for your convenience!
