One slice of white toast from the cafeteria is 55p, that is an extortionate price for toast. University students already struggle with everyday costs, I don't think we should be subjected to the same issues within the university.


Change the price of toast from 55p for ONE SLICE to 20p-30p

4:03pm on 18 Jan 19 Youre paying for the fact that you didn't toast your own bread and bring it with you :D it's called convenience. Solution: There is the SU microwave to heat your bread up.

12:44pm on 10 Jan 19 Given the cost of an Asda loaf of bread. A student could in theory, undercut the university by a margin of more than 50% and still make a profit. That fact alone indicates that the price is inordinate.

6:05am on 6 Jan 19 I agree the discount given is ridicules, and 55p for toast, you’d rather skip a quick snack.

5:01pm on 3 Jan 19 The Uni should also look into increasing the laughably low discount of 5% for students...
