PLANS TO introduce full catering in Derwent College next year have been abandoned. The college will remain fully self-catered and will go through further renovations of facilities.
According to SU President Rich Croker, who sits on the Catered College Implementation Group and Medium Term Evaluation Group, a survey was carried out in Derwent after the refurbishment of kitchens in December, which showed that “people were self-catering satisfactorily at the moment and could continue for the coming year.”
This summer, all blocks will be fully adapted for self-catering. Dining areas will be created in 2008.
According to Croker, the changes are expected to provide residents of Derwent with “more than adequate” dining facilities adding “The improvements that are happening at speed across campus are a really positive sign.”
