Paying for Meals

College members must buy credit in advance (placed on their university cards) for all meals. This can be purchased by cash or cheque at the Finance Office, or online via the UPay booking system. (Please contact finance@hughes.cam.ac.uk if you have any difficulties with the system.)

The price list for everyday dining items is available here.

Mobile phones

During everyday meals, electronic devices should be used unobtrusively and in a manner that will not disturb others. We recommend that voice calls are taken in the foyer.

For Formal Hall please keep mobile phones off or on silent mode during drinks and dinner. Use of any electronic device should be kept to a minimum, and must not be intrusive or disrespectful to your fellow diners. In particular, voice calls should only be made in the foyer.
