XIV. General Information

Guelph Campus Cooperative

The Guelph Campus Co-op was started in 1913 by students who knew they couldn't count on others to look out for their interests. So they organized their buying power. Their biggest concerns: the availability and cost of textbooks and finding a decent place to live. Sound familiar? Obviously a lot has changed since then. But not the principles behind the co-op. First and foremost, we're still by students for students. Students still dictate Co-op policy and our services are still focused squarely on making student life better. Perhaps most relevant to you is that we are not a profit-centred corporation. Getting more of your money is not our mandate. Saving you money is.
