Take at look at all our catering outlets across the South Kensington, Hammersmith and Charing Cross campuses.
Cashless pilot in outlets expanded and extended to end of February
The cashless-only payment pilot service in 8 outlets on the South Kensington Campus has been extended until the end of February:
- Queen’s Tower Rooms
- SCR restaurant
- Electrical Engineering Café
- Business School Café
- SCR Café
- College Café
On average, over 80% of all College catering transactions are already cashless. This pilot aims to improve your experience by reducing queuing times and creating a faster service, responding to feedback you have given us on this issue.
In order to best assess it's overall impact, the trial is being continued into February. We'll be assessing its overall impact following the trial and will publish this evaluation here online in March. You can help us with this evaluation by leaving your feedback on the trial using our online feedback form.
During the pilot, you will be able to pay at these outlets using your Yoyo account, contactless cards, and chip and pin cards (we do not accept American Express).
With fifteen catering outlets in our South Kensington campus we have something here for everyone from a convenience store and grab-and-go counters to restaurants serving three course menus.
