For over 45 years, Sodexo has been working with clients in the education market to support academic achievements and maintain the welfare of pupils, students and teachers.

Supporting the student experience

We know that both students and staff want healthy and freshly prepared meals using ethically sourced ingredients at a competitive price.

They want to feel safe in their learning environments. And they want to live in accommodation that is clean, well-maintained and secure.

In many of our universities, we are in direct competition with the high street. Therefore, we employ experts that monitor the market to ensure what we offer is always on trend – and more importantly, that what we offer adheres to our customers’ values and expectations in terms of quality of service.
