The College Dining Hall

Kellogg offers a range of options, whether you want a formal meal or a light snack. The Dining Hall provides dinners, lunches and weekend brunches at specific meal times. The new College Hub offers a more informal common room experience, with a Café that serves light meals and drinks throughout the working day and vending machines offering food and hot and cold drinks 24 hours a day. Click for more information on what is available at the College Hub. The College Bar serves a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and is a great space in which to meet friends and relax.

Guest Night Dinners

Kellogg College hosts at least one Guest Night Dinner per week during term-time. All College members are warmly encouraged to attend these formal dinners, to enjoy delicious food and good company. Our formal dinners provide an opportunity for students, alumni, fellows, and friends of College, to meet and share knowledge, ideas and experience. Academic gowns should be worn by Fellows and current students for all Guest Night Dinners, unless specified otherwise.

Every student has an entitlement to an allowance for complimentary Guest Night Dinners. For further information, please see the Student Handbook.

All Guest Night Dinners must be booked in advance. Booking information can be found via the event publicity and the Events calendar. Please note in particular the booking and cancellation deadlines. Cancellations made after the deadline will still be charged, unless a guest from the waiting list is able to fill the vacancy.

Informal Dinners

Informal dinners are served every weekday evening from 18:15 in the Dining Hall during term-time, except when a Guest Night Dinner is taking place. There is no dress code and there is no need to book. Sign in on the sheet when you arrive. You will be charged via battels at the end of each term.


Lunch in the Hub

The Hub offers a range of light meals and snacks from the Café and vending machines. The Café is cashless, ie only credit and debit cards can be used for payment. The Hub’s vending machines, however, accept only coins. Student lunch allowances cannot be used in the Hub.

Lunch in the Dining Hall

Lunch is served in the Dining Hall from 12:45 to 13:45 every weekday during term-time. As we are an egalitarian community, we do not have a high table at Kellogg, so all College members sit and eat together during lunch. There is no dress code, and there is no need to book. Sign in on the sheet when you arrive and your lunch will be set against your student lunch allowance. Once that allowance is used up, you will be charged via battels at the end of the term.

The format of the meal is explained in the table below. Click to view the Trinity Term Lunch Menu 2017 (pdf).
