The Best Comfort Food Around Campus For New Uni Students 🍔 😈

Face it, you love a good burger. Greasy foods are a guilty pleasure for all of us, with some people indulging more than others...if that sounds like you, keep reading to find out where your next mouth-watering oily bite is located. (if you're not a fan of grease, check this list out instead 🍏)


1. The Uni Canteen

Plain and simple, you can't go wrong with this one. It's a staple for a lot of students, whether you're going there to eat or just meeting friends. They've got burgers, donuts, ftiras and way more. The canteen is a casual and convenient spot to visit between lessons, and also one of the cheapest options on our list.

2. Pizza By Luca

Moving on, we have your classic post-failing an assignment celebratory meal, some great pizza. Located right around the corner to the food & food mini-market, with more relatively cheap meals, this makes another good option. Don't forget though, Luca doesn't just make great pizzas, he's also got rice, pasta, wraps, and even steaks on the menu!

3. Mexican Food Truck - Quad at Uni

Right next to the Dr. Juice truck, in the middle of quad, you can find some tasty Mexican food. For those of you with an appetite for foreign cuisine this could become one of your regular meals. They've got spiced chips, they've got Mexican style burgers and wraps, they've got it all.

4. Matilda's Cafe and Bistro

There's something for everyone here, seriously. Pizza / pasta / salads / wraps / burgers / bacon pancakes, it's a great selection. Oh and if you have an early morning lecture they even offer full breakfast options, so you can start your day off right. You can find this spot right around the corner to Pizza By Luca.

Location - 2 min walk from campus

Student's Choice - The bacon pancakes...duh

there is no greater joy

5. The World Famous 'Jeff's Pastizzeria'

Okay maybe not world famous, but architecture students definitely know what I'm talking about. Right next to their faculty lies a humble pastizzeria, the crème de la crème of greasy bites. For students in other faculties, this spot might be a slight hassle to get to, but if you ever get the time to make the journey, your tastebuds will love you for it. As you might expect, this spot doesn't form part of our healthy options list 😅

Location - 3 min walk from campus

Student's Choice - Pastizzi, old but gold.
