Blues is a bright modern space with a large eating and social area, overlooking Square 4.

Blues has a warm and relaxed atmosphere serving Italy's favourite coffee, Lavazza, speciality tea and cold drinks, tasty snacks and cakes.

You can find the Campus' largest salad bar in Blues, alongside jacket potatoes, soups and homemade stews, including vegetarian options. Blues are also now serving carvery sandwiches with meat cut freshly from the joint.
