Why doesn’t the Avenue cafe accept MasterC

Days where I don’t have any food options available on Avenue campus now means that without my wallet, which I rarely take out because I use Apple Pay, I have to suffer through the day because there are no catering options available on Avenue campus. Why is this?

Hi there,

Thanks for your You Make Change submission.

I've spoken to the University catering team and confirmed that Avenue Cafe does take Master Card.

However, I have been informed that sometimes there is a problem with payments on contactless card which is a provider issue.

The University are currently going through a procurement process to get a new payment provider so hopefully this will be better moving forward.

All the best,
