Surveys with students, staff and faculty identified Starbucks as a desired brand that they are seeking to experience on campus. Starbucks will bring more food and drink variety, a full offering of Fairtrade certified coffees and teas and their mobile technology to UVic’s customer base.

“The new licensed store has the brand power to support and contribute to a more vibrant campus environment through extended hours on nights and weekends,” says Jim Forbes, director of campus services in a news release.

Current staff will transition to Starbucks.
