The Student Federation has four student-run businesses that offer competitive pricing, and good quality food.


Bar 1848 is your student bar located at the heart of campus. During the day, the 1848 is a chill place for a bite to eat at a reasonable price. With its classic student pub feel, games, foosball, and pool table, the 1848 is a great place to kick up your feet with friends between classes.


Just a two minute walk away from campus, the Agora Bookstore offers lower prices on books, manuals and course packs.

Located in the basement of Simard, Café Alt provides students with healthy food options, fair trade and organic products, as well as foods that meet the needs of different diets such as vegetarian, vegan and gluten free. We are proud to be the only coffee shop in Ottawa to serve our unique coffee bean, which happens to be the very best coffee on campus!

The Pivik is your one stop shop on campus for all your needs at low prices. It’s like a mini grocery store at the heart of campus.
