Higher prices for hot drinks, soft drinks and sweets
Prices in supplier Maas's coffee vending machines went up at the beginning of this year. You pay 65 cents for instant coffee/tea and 1.30 euros for fresh bean coffee since 1 January. If you use your own cup, this will save you 10 cents.
Utrecht University has an agreement with Maas that the prices may be raised once a year, in January. Like many other things, coffee has become a lot more expensive worldwide. Therefore, the price change is higher than normal.
Prices for sweets and soft drinks have increased by an average of 9 per cent. Prices in Coffee Stations* (the upscale coffee machines) were increased by about 14 per cent.
*You can find the Coffee Stations in the David de Wied Building, Bestuursgebouw, Marinus Ruppert Building, Martinus J. Langeveld Building, Sjoerd Groenman Building, Jeannette Donker-Voet Building, Janskerkhof 2-3, Drift 21, and on the International Campus Utrecht in the Newton Hall and Spinoza Hall.
