Pittville Student Village


Pittville Student Village opened in September 2017, following a £38million investment. With almost 800 students living on site, this also saw the launch of a new bar, shop & refectory within the Laurie Lee building.


The Shop offers a full Grab & Go range, breakfast wraps, a choice of a hot lunch including soups & pastries, as well as a wide range of ingredients to allow students to cook at home. Beyond this the shop also provides convenient staple items, confectionary, home supplies, stationary, a Starbucks machine and a range of chilled drinks.


The Refectory offers a fresh main course throughout the week and food made to order on weekends. As well as this, we provide freshly-ground UoG Coffee, a full salad bar, confectionary and further Grab & Go options. Please ask our staff for any allergy advice about our dishes and range of food on sale.


The Phoenix at Pittville is a new vibrant space on the first floor of Laurie Lee. Much like the other campus bars, there are a wide range of drinks including beers, cider, cocktails and soft drinks. We also serve our bar food menu from opening including pizzas, wedges and nachos. We run regular events in the bar as displayed on the calendar, and there are pool tables and SubTV, the modern-jukebox, available to request your own choice of music.
