New café and bar and shop to open doors at Walsall


The University is increasing services and opening times for catering outlets and opening a new shop at Walsall Campus, following feedback from students and staff. 

A new Campus Store will open on 28 January 2019 in the Jerome K Jerome building and an additional café and bar will open in the Performance Hub in February.

The outlets will open on a cashless basis with all card payments accepted and also our loyalty scheme Yoyo where added value can be achieved for regular users using the University’s points scheme.

The overall campus opening times will therefore support a seven day operation at Walsall and an offering across additional buildings on campus:
