Who are we?

Warwick Retail's services are the most used in the University! Our remit is large: We manage and operate all the University owned cafes, bars, restaurants and shops as well as the leases for the shops in the Students' Union atrium and Costa.

We are a service provider for all staff, students and visitors and our aim is simple: To create exciting, social spaces that everyone can enjoy, whatever time of day, whatever the occasion. Warwick Retail is part of the Campus and Commercial Services group - click here for more info.

We're more than just cafes, bars, restaurants and shops...

Piazza market
The monthly piazza market days on central campus are extremely popular with students, staff and the local community. Running 10am-3pm each market day, come and soak up the atmosphere and try something tempting for lunch. There's always a vibrant mix of stall holders selling local, fresh produce or mouth watering street food. The next market is Wednesday 2 November.
