Exciting Changes at the Downcity Campus: Starbucks, Bookstore and Marketplace

  • JWU’s Downcity Bookstore is moving to a renovated space on the lower level of the John Hazen White building next to Marketplace. Construction begins on April 23. The new location is set to open in early July. Until then, the store will operate in its current location (One Weybosset Hill).
  • Marketplace is closed for the remainder of the academic year and summer. It will re-open as a grab and go style concept that will offer a variety of “better for you,” globally inspired products including plant based, flavor rich and gluten-free options.
  • Marketplace’s former offering of BYOB is not going away. It will be incorporated into the menu rotation at Snowden and Harbor View dining facilities. In addition, some favorite Marketplace items including sandwiches, sushi, chips, and bottle beverages, will be available at Red Mango starting April 23.
  • Starbucks Downcity will be closing for renovations starting May 20 through early August. In addition to an updated and more modern design, this location will soon offer more food options with warming capabilities.
