Temporary Closure: The Kitchen at Alcuin


This week YUSU took the difficult decision to temporarily close the Kitchen at Alcuin due to the absence of some of our workforce who are currently unavailable as they follow government advice around the pandemic. We hope the popular venue will be back open before the end of the month.

The venue is YUSU’s only specialist sandwich bar and provides the best coffee on campus. Freshly baked bread and expert barista coffee is something our staff and customers take very seriously but that does mean that we cant quickly and easily retrain staff from other venues without compromising our high standards.

In the meantime The Courtyard, Vanbrugh Arms and The Glasshouse are open and offering hot and cold drinks with a range of food. We are very grateful for our staff showing such diligence and following all government advice carefully and we look forward to them being fit, healthy and back at work safely in due course.
