Retail on campus

We have two café’s at our Ourimbah campus where you can grab a quick bite to eat before class or sit and enjoy the surrounds. Both cafes offer a huge range of hot and cold meals including salads, poke bowls, wraps, focaccias, sandwiches and hot meals as well as delectable cakes and slices. There is also a range of dietary requirement choices and vegetarian and vegan choices.

Our two food and beverage outlets and their locations can be found below:
