The Corner - Aberdeen Student Food Co-op

What is The Corner?

The Corner is a not-for-profit and non-surplus-generating food co-operative that aims to provide University students, staff and members of the wider Aberdeen community with a range of ethical, affordable products. We sell a vast array of wholefoods, snacks, cooking essentials, drinks and toiletries. The Corner is run solely by volunteers and we are committed to sustainability and affordability – the majority of our products are organic and/or fair-trade.

Where is The Corner?

The Corner is located on the top floor of the Butchart Centre in ‘The Gallery’ on the Aberdeen University campus – right across from our co-operative cousins at Shared Planet Café!

When is it open?

The Corner is open from Monday to Friday between 12pm and 4pm during term-time. We will be closed during holidays and examination periods.
