UTC Derby Pride Park has an excellent all day restaurant offering a full and attractive range of food and drinks. Menus offer selections to meet all cultural needs including vegetarian and Halal produce.

UTC Derby operates a cashless swipecard ID catering arrangement. All students are allocated an account and funds can be put into student accounts by parents across a secure internet payment option, or via student payment to cashpoints at the UTC student services reception. Free school meals allocations will be managed by the Local Authority and automatically allocated to student accounts.

Fresh water dispensers are available throughout the UTC building and students are encouraged to bring a bottle for water. Students can also bring packed lunches to eat at the UTC. Pre-16 students will not be allowed off site at lunch times. Post-16 students may go off site for the lunch period.
