Food and drink

Eating together is part of College life. It's a great way to catch up with friends and meet new people, and there are plenty of options to choose from.

All our accommodation includes kitchen facilities so you can cook for yourself or with friends at home. But many students enjoy eating together in the cafeteria or 'Caff', where you can get lunch and dinner every day. The food is good, and there's plenty of choice for all tastes and diets.

If you want to have a coffee and catch up with your friends you don't need to go into town, our café is open all week and serves food as well as hot and cold drinks at great prices.

Our bar is a popular place for students to unwind in the evenings. You can get a bite to eat as well as choosing from a wide selection of drinks.

Like most Cambridge Colleges we also do something called Formal Hall, which is a served three course dinner. Everyone dresses formally and you wear your gown. At Jesus we hold Formal Hall five times a week and it's very popular, especially for celebrating a special occasion.
