Couscous replacing the common cheese bread-roll
Does the supply still meets the demands of our students and staff members? Much has happened in recent years. The campus has not only become much more international, but Dutch tastes have also changed. Croquette sandwiches and filter coffee no longer sufficiently satisfy the taste buds of contemporary foodies, connoisseurs and discerning consumers.
From cafeteria to catering
Good-quality healthy and varied food and drinks and taking different budgets into account is what is required these days. In other words: something for everyone. That is what we want to achieve on campus. However, a catering outlet can be more than just a place that serves food and drinks. It is also a place where you can meet with fellow students or colleagues to simply have a chat or discuss important topics. TU Delft wants more of these types of meeting places on campus. This means no big cafeterias anymore. The new catering facilities range in size from a Food & Beverage Corner serving as the living room of each faculty to Food Markets (restaurants) within walking distance. The range is becoming more diverse, international and certainly healthier.
The current cafeterias in the faculties will be converted into Food & Beverage Corners with a basic range of good espresso coffee, sandwiches, salads, soups and hot snacks. Or you can make your own coffee in the self-service coffee bars from DE Coffee Kitchen and Starbucks. In the seats around, you can socialise, study or just chill. The supply and structure are being coordinated together with the faculties and geared to their specific needs. The coffee, soft drinks and snack machines will remain on the different floors in the faculty.
