Congratulations to the team at Coventry University, who along with their client have won an Excellence Award at the university’s annual conference and awards ceremony.

The awards recognise exemplary practice and commitment to the university and the team won in the ‘Outstanding Professional Services Team - University Environment’ category for their involvement in projects to improve the catering and retail provision at the university.

Jonathan Keitch, Partenrship Director at Coventry University said: “We were delighted that the hard work we’ve done with the estates team at the university has been recognised in this way.

“Since our contract began at the university in September 2018, we’ve been working with our client to reinvent their food offer to make it more modern and appealing to students and staff.

“We were awarded the contract because the client felt that we offered the best range of exciting and healthy food. But without reinventing the dining environment, this would only have a limited impact.

“Within three weeks of moving in, we’d worked with the estates team to refurbish the 12 food outlets, created a new coffee bar and opened a food truck.

“We’ve also now opened The Courtyard (banner image), which provides a light and attractive multi-purpose area that can be used 24/7 and has a bistro café style food offer. This space is open to the public as well as students, showcasing the university to the local community.

“Working with estates, we’ve developed vibrant, welcoming spaces that students and staff can use to socialise and relax but are also attractive places to work and collaborate. This really adds value to the student experience and ensures that health and wellbeing is at the heart of the university campus.

“This has been a truly collaborative project and winning this award is a celebration of our strong partnership with our client. Thanks to Michael Ricketts, assistant director of estates catering and retail, for recognising our work and putting us forward for this award.”

Well done to the Sodexo and Coventry University teams for this amazing achievement and continued success. You can find out more about the delicious new dining experience at Coventry University, please click here.
