Blends On the go

Got a busy day at Uni? Slept in? Or maybe just have ten minutes between lectures? Don't worry, we've got you covered at Blends On the go.

If you're after a quick coffee to take away or a hot chocolate on the go then this is your go-to Blends. Situated opposite Basecamp, it's for students and staff who don't have the time, or luxury, to sit down and chill out but still want that caffiene fix or warm pick-me-up. All our drinks are served either in disposable cups to take away or, our preferred option, in your own reusable mug (with a small discount for using it too!).

Blends Markeaton Street

How about our creative students studying at Markeaton Street and Britannia Mill? Don't worry we've not forgotten about you.

Brand new for 2022 is our Blends trailer at Markeaton Street – offering the same great Blends service to our creative students without the need to visit Kedleston Road. As the University brought 'The Street' indoors, we've brought you classic Street Coffee served from our indoor trailer so you can get your morning coffee whatever the weather.

Blends Friar Gate

Last but not least we have our Blends outlet at One Friar Gate Square. Offering our Law and Social Sciences students, as well as all the Halls students nearby, all their coffee shop needs.

The second-longest running Blends your Union has opened, few people outside of the Law and Social Sciences students know this little gem is tucked away under that giant copper frame. Even if you're far from Kedleston Road, living right next to the City Centre, or studying at One Friar Gate Square, there's never far to go for great coffee or a sweet hot chocolate.
