Sodexo partners with UA92 to enhance campus experience

The Sodexo UK and Ireland Corporate Services team is partnering with University Academy 92 (UA92) in a three-year deal to enhance the overall campus experience for more than 800 students and staff.

University Academy 92 (UA92) is a higher education institution co-founded by the Class of ‘92 and Lancaster University.  It is committed to making higher education accessible to all no matter the background, through its founding principles of accessibility, social mobility and inclusivity. UA92 offers a portfolio of degree and higher education courses across business, sport, media and digital disciplines, preparing students for the world of work by offering industry-led courses.

The partnership will see Sodexo providing catering, hospitality and events services on both UA92 campuses – Old Trafford campus and the UA92 Business School, Manchester city centre.

Sodexo has introduced its Kitchen Works Co. concept. This culinary offering, based on the latest consumer insights, features a diverse range of globally inspired dishes, plant-based options and a convenient grab-and-go selection, creating a welcoming space for students to refuel and recharge.

In alignment with Sodexo’s ethos of social responsibility and community engagement, the partnership also sees the implementation of Change Please initiatives on the UA92 campuses. The unique Change Please programme empowers individuals experiencing homelessness by providing barista training, offering them paid work experience in Change Please outlets across the UK and partner businesses, and supporting their journey toward sustained employment, housing and therapy.

Julie Ennis, CEO Corporate Services for Sodexo UK & Ireland, commented: “We are thrilled to partner with UA92, a visionary institution committed to fostering excellence and holistic development. Sodexo’s comprehensive services, including our Kitchen Works Co. and Change Please offerings, aim to create a vibrant campus atmosphere that goes beyond traditional catering, nurturing the well-being and aspirations of the entire UA92 community.”
