When are deliveries made?

Deliveries will be made between 12.00 – 8.00pm. 

Where are deliveries made to i.e. the kitchen, the stairwell?

Deliveries are made to the kitchen, but if kitchen is being used by self-isolating students, we have instructed our drivers to knock on the kitchen door and leave outside the kitchen door for students to collect. This is to ensure the safety of the students and our delivery drivers.

Who cleans the Kitchen Fridges?

Flat residents are responsible for ensuring fridges are clean and items stored are as per storage information. Can you please remove any out of date food from the fridges in your kitchen.

If there is no room in fridges when the deliveries are made we may have to leave food outside the fridge for you to put away yourself.  This is not ideal as some of the kitchens will be too warm to keep the food fresh.

 

Does the student receive any communication about their food package and confirmation of the dates of isolation?

Yes, this is included in the initial notification email from the  Warden / Hall Management.
