The Institute is like a mini-town. Along with our great catering facilities we have an extensive sports centre and gym, our Graduate Salon’s hairdressing and beauty facility and iSpace, the place to go for peace and quiet when you’re reading or studying. Within iSpace you will find a range of computers and laptops which you can use to help your studies. There is also the Reading Garden which is ideal for quiet reading, with access to resources including online books and journals as well as help with assignments.
Please note: that the College is now cashless so any payments would need to be by card.
With meals starting from £3, our refectory offers food that is not only tasty but also affordable. Alongside tea, coffee and soft drinks, we stock premium sandwiches, healthy meals made in-house, a fresh salad bar, paninis, jacket potatoes, pizza and much more, all served in a comfortable, friendly environment. Vegan and vegetarian options are plentiful, and we cater to all dietary needs.
We also provide a FREE healthy breakfast to our learners every day from 8:15am – 8:45am!

This rule also applies to motorcycles, which should be parked in specially designated areas only.
Any vehicles found to be in violation of these rules may be clamped and issued with a parking ticket. Grimsby Institute is not involved in the issuing of parking tickets, and you should instead contact Shield Security for any concerns (all details are listed on the back of tickets).
