Gastrostudent- build my box


Gastrostudent was founded by former university students, for university students.

We aim to make cooking as easy as possible for every university student across the UK, no matter your cooking ability. No kitchen skills….or the next
Gordon Ramsay in the making- we’ve got you covered.

Thing is, we’ve been there, so we get it. Sometimes you can’t be a*sed to cook- so you just stick some water in one of those famous little noodle pots…and that’s dinner sorted….Or is it? (BTW we’ve got nothing against those noodle pots…they’re great from time to time!)

What about meal inspiration? Yeah…not got time for that. But, sometimes you just fancy a proper good, tasty meal like you would have at home. That’s where we come in….

Gastrostudent recipe box


Gastrostudent is the UK’s favourite student recipe box for university students.

Simply hop onto our website (no card details necessary…may we add ) choose from 60+ student-friendly recipes and we’ll deliver everything you need straight to your door (p.s. we include breakfast*)

From student classics…like a tuna pasta bake…to more adventurous meals like our vegan Mexican Rice bowl- we’ve got something for every student!

What about the chilled ingredients?

Yep they’re included…all of the cold ingredients are delivered in a neat little paper insulated pouch which keeps your ingredients fresh and cool for 48 hours.

Do I need to be in for my delivery?

No. Once dispatched you can manage your delivery with our courier partner, DHL. That means you spend less time doing this ARRRRRRRGHHHHH

And more time doing this……..


You know…student stuff.

Do I need to be a student to buy a Gastrostudent recipe box?

Nope…we’re confident that all of our ingredients and recipes hold up with the UK’s best recipe boxes- in fact, some say we’re better

What makes Gastrostudent different from other recipe boxes?

Honestly, we think we’ve come up with the best solution on the market for students. We don’t think that other recipe boxes are the best option for the uni lifestyle.

They don’t offer recipe boxes for 1 person- we do.

They tie you into subscriptions, make it difficult to cancel, and then you’re forced to have meals which you didn’t necessarily choose- we don’t.

They don’t offer breakfast- we do.

They don’t allow you to pay in instalments- we do (we’ve partnered with Klarna for that)

So you see…there’s lots that makes us different. And, we think you’ll agree that there’s lots that makes us great.

Got any more questions?

Feel free to drop us a message or jump on our live chat and one of our customer care specialists will respond to you asap.
