Essex Food Rewards

yoyo logo

Essex Food Rewards is our new loyalty app that allows you to collect points with every purchase you make in selected outlets and use them towards your favourite treats!

Our Colchester Campus is a compact ‘high street’ with fourteen busy restaurants, cafes and food outlets located in Squares 3, 4, 5 and 6 at the heart of campus. Bonds can be found on the North side of campus in our Essex Business School. Seven days a week, from breakfast through to late night snacks, you’ll find an outlet open.

If you're cooking for yourself, then the SU Campus Shop is open 24-hours a day and a large supermarket is within easy walking distance of our Colchester Campus.


Keep It On Campus is an initiative designed to raise awareness of University of Essex Campus Services and encourage both students and staff to use the services available on campus. Whenever you see the Keep It On Campus stamp, you are about to buy a product or use a service which is owned by the University of Essex Campus Services. This includes Essex Food, an owned subsidiary of the University of Essex offering a wide variety of cafes and restaurants with high quality and value for money food and beverages to the University community. This means all profits generated are used to support and reinvest in the University. Every time you use a product or service which has the KIOC stamp, such as Essex Food, you are being informed that your money will be reinvested in to the University.
