Test stress? No problem, I’ve got you covered
If I’m going to attend any 8:30 lecture it’s going to be with a cup of coffee in my hand.
There’s nothing worse than rushing to class and realizing you need a coffee to survive the next hour and twenty minutes, but you have no idea how or where you’re going to get your fix.
I’ve got you covered guys; I’ve narrowed it down to the top 5 cups of coffee on or near campus.
- Starbucks Tuscany location: Not exactly on campus but the closest cup you’ll get on your way to or from campus. Great location for studying. There are always lots of tables and the staff are friendly.
Caution: You will smell like an old sock after studying in Starbucks for an extended period…the old coffee smell is the worst so be prepared.
- Awaken the inner study guru with Spirit Bear Coffee
The Bibliocafe is usually pretty busy between classes, but the wait is only 5-10 minutes depending on the line. Staff are friendly and efficient so the line moves pretty quickly.
This brand is everywhere on campus, so it’s very accessible depending on classroom location.
This brand just so happens to be right next to the most popular wrap/sandwich bar on campus so you can grab a bite while you get your fix.
- Go local with Salt Spring Coffee
Locations on campus: Finnerty Express Cafe (underneath the bookstore).
This is the perfect spot to grab a cup if you’re getting off the bus and need to rush off to class.
- Kick start the day with Kicking Horse Coffee
Locations on campus: Munchie Bar, Student Union Building.
This is my favourite cup of coffee on campus. For the last 4 years at UVic, I’ve been hitting up Munchie’s for my daily fix.
The coffee’s great and the prices are reasonable (especially if you have your own mug).
That’s all I’ve got guys, happy studying!
