Our Story

Leicester Services Partnership was formed from the joint venture partnership between the University of Leicester and its Students’ Union in May 2017. It was the first of its kind in the UK among the Higher Education Industry, to unify and deliver all catering, retail and bars operations across the campus.

We always endeavour to provide a consistent customer service experience, inspirational spaces to eat, drink, relax, reflect, learn and socialise and offer something entirely new for our customers.

This equal partnership signals change; offering a fresh new start to all those operating within it and therefore benefiting the customer.

By offering exciting, vibrant and current food options and trends, improving the efficiency across the board by streamlining operations, basing operational and marketing decisions on customer research and data, we pride ourselves on always being a customer–focused and customer–led business. This is also promoted through value for money offers as well as an enticing loyalty scheme.

We truly aim to put our customers at the forefront of all that we do, by providing quality, fresh, sustainable and local food and drink, a professional and friendly service and engaging spaces for all staff, students and visitors.

We aim for all within the university to discover, explore and enjoy a great variety of food and retail options on campus. Our business is constantly growing and evolving to ensure each customer makes the most of their time at The University of Leicester.

Our mission:
Value our community and enhance their experience by providing best in class services to stimulate the body, mind and soul.
