Grab your grub and pay with your phone

Cashless payment has been introduced at some of our Colchester Campus catering outlets with a money-off voucher for the first 100 people who sign up to the new scheme.

Already in use at several UK universities, the payment system, called Yoyo, allows users to pay direct from their mobile phone after downloading Yoyo on the App Store or Google Play and topping up their account. Your phone is then scanned at the till after you have made your purchases.

It has been introduced at Blues, Fusion, Happy Days, Canteen and Refresh.

Yoyo users collect loyalty points and will receive special offers directly to their phone. A £5 top-up will be added to the first 100 people who quote this code: ESXLAUNCH.

All the tills will still be able to accept cash and payment by debit or credit cards is also being introduced throughout.
