Your Union Supermarket

Your one stop shop to pick up those bits and bobs you need on your way back from your lecture.

Essentials is run by the Union and completely not for profit, we work with students to stock the things you need. Grab a basket and stroll through our aisles, with lunchtime meal deals, stationery, toiletries and our recently added range of cards and gifts we’ve got all the essentials you need for Uni life.
