A little bit about the Committee

The Catering and Tavern Committee aims to continually improve the food and drink provided on campus.

We meet monthly to monitor and review existing services and functions of all our catering outlets, and to discuss possible new food and drink option items.

Currently our catering outlets include the Guild-run Village Cafe, Hackett Cafe, Catalyst Cafe, Quobba Gnarning Cafe, Dentistry Kiosk and Nedlands Cafe, and the Tavern. We also manage all outlets in the Refectory and food trucks on campus.
