Dining at PC

Phoenix College's cafeteria, known as the 'Bear Cave' Café, is operated by Chartwells and offers a wonderful variety of dining selections and provides catering services for the campus.

The Bear's Brew Coffee Bar offers coffee, tea and pastries inside PC's Student Union, known as the Bear's Den, which is right off of Sophomore Square.

Bear's Den

The Phoenix College Student Union, more commonly known as the Bear's Den, is a great place to hang out, study, chat with friends, watch tv, or play games. Take a seat at one of the computers that line the wall for academic purposes or stop at the front desk and pick up a console game or air hockey puck and head to the game room.

The north side of the building boasts floor to ceiling windows where you have a scenic view of the SU Patio. The patio is often used by clubs for social events and barbecues, and if you are lucky, you just might catch the music students during one of their jam sessions. 

College departments, spaces and offices located in the Student Union building include:

  • Achieving a College Education (ACE)
  • Bear's Brew Coffee Bar
  • Hoop of Learning
  • Student Game Room*
  • Student Leadership Council Office
  • Student Life & Leadership
  • Student Union Conference Rooms 117A & 117B
