The Study Public House is located across from SFU Library on Convocation Mall.

Coming soon to the heart of Burnaby campus— The Study Public House

March 01, 2019

Opening on Apr. 1, The Study will be a food-and-fun-focused venue that promises to become a vibrant social hub where students, staff, faculty and the UniverCity community can meet, make new friends and create lasting memories.

Located adjacent to the new student union building, The Study is a 19+ venue that can seat over 300 patrons, with more accommodated outdoors on the expanded pub patio overlooking the city.

The completely renovated pub features comfortable booth and table seating upstairs while the lower floor is outfitted with vintage pinball games, shuffleboard and ping pong tables.

The menu will feature local, craft and made-from-scratch traditional fare, tasty classics, and happy-hour specials.

Families can bring their children into the venue until 10 p.m. Occasional alcohol-free events where all students, regardless of age, may participate, are being considered.

The new campus pub will be operated by the Joseph Richard Group (JRG), which operates a number of public houses and restaurants in and around Metro Vancouver.

Mark McLaughlin, chief commercial services officer at SFU says, “Our vision is to create a fun place on the Burnaby campus where students can enjoy the social aspects that are part of student life outside the classroom while appealing equally to faculty, staff and UniverCity residents. We expect that JRG will successfully add vibrancy to the campus.”

The pub opening isn’t the only recent enhancement to the student experience at SFU. See a timeline of exciting improvements from the Student Experience Initiative.
