Meals and dining

Self-serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper are available daily, with lots of choices. Our chef can easily cater for special dietary needs (vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free etc).

You can make a packed lunch in the morning if you won’t have time to return to College for lunch. We can arrange for a late dinner if you have other commitments during dinner time.

We hold regular formal dinners throughout the year, often with an invited guest speaker. Students are also invited to special event dinners including convocations and valedictories, the Bannockburn Community Awards, and cultural and sports awards nights.

Laundry and cleaning

We provide a weekly laundry service for students. Washing is returned to you clean, dry and folded. There are also coin-operated washers and dryers.

Student rooms are cleaned thoroughly each week, and common areas and wing bathrooms are cleaned daily.
