The Oasis

– Open till really late 2am, to be exact! Serving the Canadian classic Smokers Poutine and cosyly located at residence commons it’s central to the true residence life or even just for those late nights staying up to study grab and go.


Loeb Café

Located at the furthest end of campus this is truly a god send for when you’re starving and don’t want to walk all the way back! Loeb Building is a bit of a maze for most however with signs right at the entrance Loeb cafe is relatively easy to find and once you’re there you wont be  disappointed!
