Dewey's is your licensed lounge at the heart of North Campus. Our large space means there’s plenty of room for you to safely enjoy our all-day breakfast from the loft, or watch the action in the billiard room, alongside delicious eats and a truly unique old-industrial vibe. Did we mention we do an all-day breakfast?

This bistro-pub art space is one of the largest licensed spaces on campus. Stop by and take a break from school’s stresses. From our all-day breakfast and gourmet coffees, to our homemade paninis and a great selection of local and craft beer on tap, there is something to satisfy everyone’s tastes!

Dewey’s is available for parties, special events and get-togethers. The space is available for free to student groups to host events, and private bookings are also available.
