Free breakfast for students and staff

Students and staff can enjoy a free breakfast on campus every weekday from Wednesday 25 January to Friday 24 March, following a campaign from De Montfort Students’ Union (DSU).


This winter warmer, open to all students and staff, will be available at the Food Village from 8-10am, Monday to Friday.

Aliya Khan, DSU’s Welfare Executive Officer, said: “This is fantastic news from DMU - we welcome their collaboration with us and support for our students.

“After recently conducting a cost of living survey, the number one request from students was for support with the provision of food. By offering a free breakfast, we're taking some of that financial pressure off students, as well as ensuring they don’t go without at least one hot meal a day.

“DMU has acted quickly in getting this initiative up and running and has worked with us every step of the way. We’re very fortunate as a student body to have this level of support.”

The offer is for one free breakfast per person per day, from the following options:

Food (your choice of one of the below)

  • Cereal with milk
  • Toast (up to two slices) with butter and jam
  • Porridge with sugar, syrup or sultanas
  • Toast (one slice) with beans or scrambled egg

Drinks (your choice of one of the below)

  • Tea (8oz)
  • Orange juice carton
  • Apple juice carton

Students and staff will need to show their DMU ID card at the till to claim their free breakfast. Other food and drink items will be available to buy at their usual prices and this offer can’t be used to offset their cost.

We will work to ensure that all free options are available every day, but there may be occasions where some are unavailable until we have a better understanding of demand, and will adjust stock levels accordingly.
