Bear Necessities

Bear Necessities is a convenience store and grill located on the first floor of Robert Purcell Community Center on north campus.

Our grill serves up deluxe burgers, hot chicken sandwiches, delicious french fries, and other mouth-watering comfort foods. You can also order our signature 5 Star Subs, and our homemade pizza (try the buffalo wing pizza to find out what the buzz is about!).

In our convenience store, you'll find a wide array of snacks, beverages, Freshtake Grab-n-Go sandwiches and salads, frozen take-away meals, household items, and pharmacy and beauty supplies.

Save time, don't wait in line!  Order online here.
