Since the café was shut down back in March due to Covid-19, Agora has been facing financial difficulties that would make it hard for us to reopen safely. With the start of November, we are launching our 1-month crowdfunding campaign. Before the café can reopen in the future, the café requires upgrades that meet the safety standards set out by UBC and the province of BC. This campaign allows us to raise enough money to purchase the necessary equipment and materials that will allow us to implement our safety strategy. This includes the installation of plexiglass, PPE, and proper sanitation methods. $1500 was calculated to be the necessary amount of funds needed to facilitate our reopening.
Agora Café appreciates any help that we receive from people like you. Even if you are not in a position to give, we encourage that you share our campaign (https://bit.ly/34w3Lpx) and our social media posts with your friends and family. The shift to online learning has posed a great challenge to us by hindering our ability to connect with students and faculty, but we thank you to those who continue to support us online.

Hello folks. With the 2020/2021 year right around the corner, Agora would like to announce that our cafe will remain closed for the upcoming semester. Due to the nature of online courses, limited access to campus, and most importantly the hazard that COVID-19 poses, we will be unable to offer volunteers the position to work in our cafe for semester 1. We know many of you are eager to volunteer with us and we hope to be able to offer you all that opportunity in semester 2 if conditions are more favourable.
In addition to closing our cafe, we will not be offering our catering services.
With relatively all our services out of order, Agora is also exploring alternative ways to serve our customers during the semester with COVID-19 precautions in mind. Keep an eye out for additional information and important announcements regarding this in the coming months.
Stay safe and enjoy the rest of your summer!
We will be closing for term 1 on Wednesday, November 28th! Enjoy the holidays and we will see you on January 23rd when we open again!
Thank you for your continuous support xx
