Diversity and Balance

IPLeiria offers a number of food units, through its Student Support Services.

The options are varied: five canteens, nine bars, two restaurants and a snack bar.

Students have access to a meal service, at a very affordable price. In canteens complete meals are provided at social prices (the complete meal includes: soup, main course, salad, bread, fruit or dessert and juice) and, in the bars, there are also menus with subsidized prices. There is a permanent concern with the diversification of meals, trying to assure balanced diet menus and improve the level of student satisfaction.
