Support Metro Coffee
Metro Coffee is a well-loved, significant member of the UW Tacoma campus culture.
As a café and social setting, Metro Coffee provides a unique experience that students, faculty, staff, and external community members value. Metro is a welcoming, informal hub for the kind of meaningful interactions and exchanges we struggle to find on a decentralized campus. It offers more than a classic university coffee shop menu and setting; it offers a sense of belonging.
As an independently owned, small business, Metro Coffee embodies the ideal urban campus-community relationship. Metro is well known to support campus and city events and organizations. It partners with other small businesses to bring the best coffee, tea, and food options to UWT. Metro is a favorite meeting place and a regular part of many of our lives.
Metro Coffee has worked with the campus through many construction projects and infrastructure issues. It anchors an historical building and is an excellent use of the space.
We urge the university to work with Metro Coffee. We want this vibrant place to be preserved and supported as our university grows. It is part of the UWT family.
