If you are on campus during the exam period, make sure to visit the Food for U website for an update on Food Service outlet hours of operation. Some of the outlets have closed for the remainder of the year.

All hours of operations have been updated, along with any upcoming changes to hours leading up to the winter break.  

Den the halls

Scrambling to get all your end of term work and studying done? From now to Fri., Dec. 17, give your noggin a break at The Den and get in the festive mood.

The Den has been decked out for the holiday season with festive decor, providing a great spot to unwind after a study session, exam or completing an end-of-term project. We have the holiday tunes jing-jing-jingling in the background so that you can enjoy a visit with friends, classmates and colleagues before the winter break. 

‘Tis the season for delicious food and beverages. We have some great holiday inspired specials to choose from. Enjoy some of chef’s poutine done up in holiday style with chopped chicken, cranberry sauce and green onion, all smothered in turkey gravy. Wash it down with some classic pa-rum-pa-pum-pum eggnog, or one of our holiday beverage specials.

Mark your calendars for a visit with Santa on Wed., Dec. 15. He will be stopping by The Den to hand out candy canes and take requests for good exam grades. Just make sure you are on the nice list.

Remember your BC Vaccine Card and government-issued ID are required to enter The Den.
