College catering that cultivate a love of fantastic food

At Chartwells Colleges, we go far beyond what’s expected from traditional college caterers. We know that exceptional food is key to developing outstanding education experiences, and for students to thrive they need carefully considered menus that champion health and wellbeing.

By cultivating a love of fantastic food amongst college students, we know we can encourage healthy habits that last a lifetime and educate our future generation on the importance of nutrition. We move with the times, accounting for the ever-evolving tastes of college students to deliver food services that get it right first time, every time. Our on-trend menus offer variety, while striking the perfect balance between nutrition, convenience and affordability. They’re also delivered with care, in ways that make sense to the students we’re privileged to work with.

Creating inclusive college experiences through food

College can be a transformative time for many students. It’s where they continue developing into young adults, learn how to protect their physical and mental wellbeing, and build lifelong social skills that help them thrive in whatever they decide to do next.

At Chartwells Colleges, we believe in creating truly inclusive food experiences that encourage every student to relax with great-tasting meals and snacks that align perfectly with their tastes and dietary requirements.


Food that evolves with college students

We believe one of the keys to college campus catering is moving with the times. Students’ tastes are ever-evolving, with new dietary choices and requirements that they expect to be reflected in the menus of forward-thinking colleges, including vegetarian, vegan, plant-forward and gluten-free options.

We’re continuously searching for ways to improve our food offerings for college students, which means actively listening to what they want, creating values-driven menus based on our insights, and preparing healthy meals that exceed expectations.
