The animal rights group PETA has selected 20 universities based on the availability of plant-based food options on campus and their initiatives to promote vegan eating. And our University earned a spot on the list, with a dedicated vegetarian café The Greenhouse, serving up a selection a freshly made salads, soups and stews and cakes alongside a collection of sandwiches. 

In addition vegan options are available in all FoodOnCampus outlets including Veggie Place in University Place on Oxford Road. 

Taste Manchester, the University’s delivered catering facility, has also seen an increase in vegan catering requests, delivering both hot and cold buffet options which are entirely vegan. 

The Food In Residence Team offer daily vegan options and have ‘meat free Mondays’ in catered halls.

Finally the award-winning ‘The Market’ at University Place has great vegan options from a number of local street traders including I am Thai, In the Dog Haus, Seitan Kebabs, The Veggie Deli, Leafy Creams Bakery, Mama Tan Malaysian Cuisine, Vnam and Nibble.

“Students in the UK are going vegan in huge numbers, and it’s great to see universities joining the revolution,” says PETA Director Elisa Allen.
