Catering guidelines

When arranging catering for a meeting or event, The University’s catering operators should be your first choice. This will ensure that the relevant due diligence checks have been carried out in relation to food safety and hygiene.

Members of staff (individually or on behalf of their work unit) must not undertake any catering of their own. 

A food safety toolkit is available on Safety Services website, which also has a very useful FAQ section.

Internal Providers

The University’s Finance Sub-Committee has confirmed that all catering for events can only be ordered through University Hospitality:

You will need to complete a Requisition template approved by the appropriate budget holder. For general catering, use KB00138. Dominic Hunt is the budget holder. Once approved, the catering can be booked and the form and approval sent to the Library Admin Team.

Catering at the John Rylands Research Institute and Library

Please contact before arranging any catering.
