Student-Run Coffee Shops

These coffeeshops are managed and run entirely by students. They are a great way for students to build experience in foodservice, customer service and general management, as well as be a part of students’ cultural spaces across campus.

All of the student-run coffeeshops offer specialty coffee from Chicago-local Bow Truss Coffee Roasters, loose-leaf tea from TeaGschwendner and daily deliveries of fresh pastries from Labriola Baking Company.
