Welcome to your on-campus shop!

We are your one stop shop for all essentials any student needs! Whether you need a notebook for class, a Heriot-Watt hoodie or an energy drink to make it through the day - we have you covered!

Our meal deal is perfect for a lunch or a snack in between classes! You can also wash it down with a coffee from our Costa Express machine - much quicker than queueing at a coffee shop!

Our aim is to be student friendly - you're our main customers after all! So we regularly check our prices to make sure you're getting the best deal (we aren't Aldi though - they'll always be cheaper lol!). We do our best to stock a variety of dietary ranges, including vegan and gluten free items. Let us know if there's something you'd like to see!

Make sure you keep an eye out for our special offers - they change regularly and are often an amazingly good deal! Match this with our Meal Deal and the savings will just keep rolling in!
