Welcome, Class of 2021! It’s almost time to start a new chapter. So, whip out the books (or the laptop!) and start exploring Westpoint Shopping Centre.
Here’s your lowdown.
Being a uni student pays…literally! Swing by Boost Juice on Level 3 for 15% off for uni students. Oporto’s, also on Level 3, offers 10% off for uni students, so you can eat as many Bondi Burgers or delicious flame-grilled chicken as you can afford.
For a lighter choice, hit up Roll’d on Level 1. As a student you can get two fresh Rice Paper Soldiers for only $5!
And, when all else fails, McDonald’s on Level 3 is sure to cheer you up! Hit up their Loose Change Menu for a snack from $2 or there’s always the crowd favourite; the Double Beef and Bacon Meal for $4.95. Winning!
If you’re not stopping by for meal time, a quick caffeine hit can really put a spring in your step! Gloria Jean’s Coffee on Level 3 has every kind of coffee imaginable, including a range of tasty iced coffee mixes for those hot, sticky days.
Or, stop by Nadia’s Coffee on Level 2 for a coffee and a quick snack. Hot tip: the French Toast is guaranteed to pack enough sweetness to carry you through even the most snooze-worthy lecture.
Best spots to charge your devices
Head to the Fresh Food Precinct on Level 1 to find our phone-charging station. Order an iced tea from Chatime or grab a coffee from Christopher’s Cake Shop (fast fact: it’s one of Australia’s oldest cake shops) and sip while you charge up your devices.
Even though there are lounge areas throughout the centre, Westpoint also has a few chill-out zones where you can escape the noise, grab a bite or just chill out.
The Food Courts on Level 1 and Level 3 are perfect for a quick bite. But if you’d prefer to just grab a coffee and cram in a quick study sesh, head to a corner of the Level 1 Fresh Food Precinct.
The Level 4 Rooftop, on the other hand, is the perfect way to catch some rays, get some fresh air or just take a minute and get away from it all.
The rooftop is the perfect place if you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the food courts. Catch up with friends over a warming bowl of ramen from KOU Ramen or try the ultimate in comfort foods: a heart-warming hot chocolate from Max Brenner. Share the waffles with a friend if you’re feeling a little bit extra.
