Forgot to pack something? The shop in Fulton House is open till 6, or you could take a 10-minute walk out of campus via the SE gate and turn left to find a Co-Op store within 500m.

Looking for that elusive coffee? Blas in Fulton (ground floor) serves Starbucks all day, Callaghans (in the basement of the James Callaghan Building, diagonally right across the mall from the entry to Faraday - look for the chairs outside) is open from 08:00 till 14:00.
