Nanaimo Campus

Nanaimo Campus has two cafeterias - the Upper/Main Cafeteria in Building 300 and the Lower Cafeteria in Building 185. The cafeterias offer breakfast, lunch and dinner options. The meals and snacks are prepared by VIU’s own Culinary Arts and Baking programs.

There is also the Starbucks coffee shop in Building 305 (The Library) and a Subway franchise in Building 165.

The VIUSU runs the VIU Students’ Union Pub in Building 193 featuring a menu designed to provide high-quality food options at an affordable price - not just pub fare!

If you are interested in an affordable fine dining experience, make sure to check out the Discovery Room for lunch or dinner. Food is prepared and served by students in the Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management programs. Reservations are recommended; call 250-740-6338.
