Student-Run Coops and Businesses

If you'd like to work in a fun, cooperative environment, then keep your eyes open for applications to one of Wellesley's student-run businesses.

Even if you don’t want to be on staff, be sure to stop by for a snack at Cafe Hoop, a sandwich from El Table, or a drink at Punch's Alley!

  • Cafe Hoop

    Café Hoop is a student-run, student-owned co-op in the basement of the Lulu Chow Wang Campus Center, founded in 1981. Serving up delicious late-night snacks and drinks, the Hoop is a great place to hang out. Stop by tonight! Facebook Page

  • El Table

    El Table, short for “Elevator Table” (when it began in 1904, it was only a small table by an elevator) is a student-run cooperative café serving sandwiches, salads, soups, and snacks.  El Table offers vegetarian and gluten-free options, and (perhaps most importantly)  refutes the rumor  that the Hoop could take El Table in dodgeball.

  • Punch's Alley

    This student-managed pub has remarkable red décor and beverage prices.  As one Yelper put it, “$3.00 beers. Even the good ones. Need I say more?”  Even if you’re not there for a beer, the pub is a fun place to meet with friends or fellow members of a student org… and almost always has live music or parties on the weekends.

  • SCOOP, The Sustainability Co-op


    Wellesley College's only sustainable living cooperative, the SCOOP is located in Simpson West (the same building as Health Services!). We live in a conscientiously sustainable and thoughtful manner, working to reduce our impact on the earth and its resources.
