The Common Cup

Cultivating a Culture of Belonging

Undergrads, graduate students, and professionals alike use this space to study, meet, work, and relax. Whether you are stopping in briefly or settling in to study for hours, we're glad you're here. Find out about our updated mission and how we plan on accomplishing it by checking out our "Who We Are" section.

Who We Are

We have a huge transient community and understand it's hard to show support and love from afar. We now offer eGift Cards to help with this. This is all done through Square Register and is emailed immediately upon purchase.

Crafting Great Experiences

We aim to create an excellent experience for each customer and we believe you deserve our best. While each item we serve has been prepared with care and patience, the ingredients play a major role in the final product.

We source our ingredients from local businesses providing high quality coffee, tea, and milk.
