We are proud of the excellent facilities we have on offer at Milton Keynes College. Comfortable learning spaces, vibrant chill out areas, our reasonably priced professional salon, onsite gym and restaurant all add to the excitement and enjoyment of College life.
Places to eat
The refectories on both our Chaffron Way and Bletchley campuses are the hub of all College life and the perfect place to spend some down time outside of class.
The refectories serve a wide range of hearty meals, light bites, snacks and drinks to suit all tastes and budgets. Value meals and vegetarian options are available every day, as well as access to vending machines means that no matter what the time of day, you’ll be able to get what you need.
You can also enjoy a coffee and pastry at our barista coffee shops at both the Chaffron Way and Silbury campuses. Relax with a frothy cappuccino, or a tasty homemade milkshake served to you by our friendly coffee shop team. Sandwiches, snacks and meal deals are also available.

Love your new look or feel pampered with our fantastic student prices in the professional Hair & Beauty salon.
Taste the latest delights from our onsite student-run restaurant and eat well for less.
Top up on all your student essentials and goodies in our student-run shop. The Student Shack is a haven for all student essentials. The prices are all reasonable and you can even pick up some of our students very own creations produced in class or outside of college.
As the main project co-ordinated by the Concrete Trees Enterprise Society, the Shack assists students in a variety of ways: It gives students an opportunity to volunteer in a working environment, building on your skills and experience which is great for your CV and for life after college. It also provides a space for students to market their own products (made during class or outside of the college) and get an understanding of how a small business works.
It is a key space to encourage learning and develop entrepreneurship. You can also take the opportunity to get further funding and support from external sources to broaden your product range and community links.
The Student Shack is constantly looking to expand, both on the individuals involved with the business and also with the products available.
For more information about selling your products or volunteering in The Shack or about the enterprise society, send us message through our Facebook page or click here to email.
