    Is it through that food in colleges especially in DCU so I believe is very expensive. Are the food prices not reduced for students? I heard a mate of mine saying he paid 8Euro for fish and chips, milk and a pack of Tayto's!!! A lunch in a pub is 9Euro and they give you as much as you want!

  • In DCU, unlike some of the bigger colleges, the food is not subsidised. The SU actually take a percentage of the takings, so they aren't rushing to lower prices




  • if your willing to spend some money on a weekly ticket, you can get a lovely dinner in any one of the DIT's for 3.50, i spent two years in DIT and am about to spend four in DCU (nearly died when i saw the price of food in the canteen). I'll prob be heading in the DIT direction for lunch. (no id required)




  • Solution... Soup!

    Always nice... and dirt cheap




  • I'm a spar roll man. Half the price,half the queueing and does grand as a lunch.

    You're still paying more than if you went to the EuroSpar across the road.

  • Some times i do. Depends on how much time i have. Most of the time i just bring something with me. Breaks can be crap some days time wise.




  • Hrm, I've always found the Spar rolls from Campus are nicer than across the road. But yea, a roll, cup of coffee and a nice doughnut beats overpriced canteen food anyday in my books.




  • My advice: Dont bother staying in college long enough each day to need to eat there. Lectures are over rated.

    Buy a bottle of Vatsky in Eurospar and have that for lunch.

    Oh yeah?
    Give me buckfast and martini any day..

    failing that i'd go for a giant breakfast roll in the old bar, it's €2.50 and a whole lot of food :)
