CSM canteen refurbishment

The UAL catering team are happy to announce that the brand-new refit at the CSM Kings Cross Canteen is now complete.

We have refurbished the space with the student experience in mind; with additional space for 40 extra students and staff, extra plug sockets for laptops, new furnishings and improved self-catering facilities. We’ve also added extra microwaves to the canteen, along with a new student sink counter to reduce lunchtime queues.

“Times are changing. The introduction of more break out seating, as well as different designed canteen furniture, will ensure the KX canteen space is used for more than just eating in. It will, I hope, become a social hub for students to enjoy all day, in an environment which will be fit for today’s students wishes” – Alastair Johns Head of Retail and Catering

The recently upgraded cafe will feature a new large soft seating lounge, with booths, sofas and armchairs to accommodate up to 64 people.

We really hope you enjoy the new refurbished space. A lot of work has gone in to making sure these facilities are outstanding, and whilst you enjoy them we would please ask that you kindly respect the space and the furniture. Please refrain from removing any elements to studios or classrooms so they can continue to be enjoyed by all.
