Catered Residences

Catering Allowance

As a catered resident in Pantycelyn, your Aber Card will automatically be credited with money to the equivalent value of breakfast and dinner 5 days a week in your hall. This meal allowance is taken from your Accommodation Fees and automatically loaded onto your Aber Card in termly instalments. The allowance is flexible, meaning you can spend it when and where you like on campus in any of Hospitality Services' award winning range of restaurants and cafes.

Please note any unspent monies will be lost at the end of your licence period.
