Check out some other on-campus eateries, all run by student associations and groups

  • The cafeteria on the second floor of the Shatner University Centre (3480 McTavish) also houses a number of eateries. Most notable among them is Sadie's, SSMU’s student-run resto-café.
  • The Midnight Kitchen offers vegan meals for whatever-you-can-pay in an effort to promote sustainable eating. You are asked to bring your own container and cutlery.  Despite their misleading name, lunches are served Monday-Thursday starting at 12:30pm in room 302 or the fourth floor clubs/lounge of the Shatner University Centre.  Please note:  Lunch service has been suspended during the closure of the Shatner University Centre.  Please see their website for current service information.
  • Located on the first floor of the Leacock Building, SNAX is your place to get coffee and, appropriately, snacks, at affordable prices on campus. Run by the Arts Undergraduate Society (AUS), SNAX is a great place to stop between classes for your morning and mid-day pick-me-up.
  • The Engineering Undergraduate Students’ (EUS) General Store (G-Store) is located in the McConnell Engineering Building. Here you can get anything you need to help you get through your long school days; whether it’s snacks, coffee, or even basic school supplies. Next door to the G-Store is EUS’s Frostbite ice cream store. If you get below 30% on a midterm, don’t fret! Head to Frostbite for a complementary ice cream and plenty of free smiles.
  • Dave’s Store, run by the Management Undergraduate Society (MUS), is located in the Bronfman basement and carries a variety of snacks and drinks to keep you up and running throughout the term.
  • Found in the basement of the Shatner University Centre, SSMU’s Gerts is a campus bar for students, professors, and visitors alike. Fun and affordable!
  • At Mac, MCSS’s ever-popular Ceilidh Pub is located in the Centennial Centre. The Ceilidh is the place to be on Thursday afternoon/night to hang out with old friends and to make new ones.
  • Many faculty student associations operate small after-school pubs one night of almost every week. Check out Arts’ BdA (Bar des Arts) on Thursdays in the AUS Lounge in the basement of the Leacock Building, Management’s 4à7 on Thursdays in the basement of the Bronfman Building, Education’s Detention Den on Thursdays in the basement of the Education Building, or Engineering’s Blues Pub on Friday nights in the EUS Common Room in the basement of the McConnell Engineering Building.
  • Open Air Pub (OAP) is the signature outdoor event organized by the Engineering Undergraduate Society (but open to all students) held each year during Orientation Week and at the end of the Winter exam period.

McGill Food and Dining Services has had a long history of collaboration with students and staff, and students are strongly encouraged to get involved. The launch of the Farmer's Market in 2005, the elimination of transfats on campus, the recycling of oil from the dining halls, and discounts on reusable mugs in dining halls are just some of the great initiatives that have come about as a result of this collaboration.
