Vending machines in Olson Hall.

Many buildings on campus have vending machines. These machines are owned and operated by Sodexho throughout campus. The basement of Olson has what might be the only machine for test supplies.

Soda on campus used to be Coca-cola, but in September of 2014 switched to a 10 year contract with Pepsi.

Vending machine types:

  • Soda — Pepsi sodas and drinks.
  • Drinks — Non-carbonated drinks (Powerade, Juice, etc.)
  • Snacks — Candy, chips, etc.
  • Food — Bagels, yogurts, fruit, burritos, instant microwavable meals, etc.
  • FrozenIce Cream These machines use awesome vacuum cleaner type hoses to retrieve your ice cream treat.
  • Test Items — scantrons, blue books, index cards, calculators, etc.

Are there any 12oz soda machines around anymore? 20oz is way too much, and too pricey.


2005-10-26 22:35:55   I want a tofu vending machine. —SteveDavison


2005-11-09 22:50:33   Last time I checked there was a 120z soda machine outside of 194 Young, the lower enterance...and I know that in Haring there is a LINE of vending machines that are not just of the frozen variety... —KarlaFung


2005-11-09 22:52:57   Second comment...what about those hot chocolate/coffee machines? Does that really constitute as a "drink"? As far as I can tell, there are only a couple of those on campus. —KarlaFung


2007-05-12 23:26:38   Is there no where to find Pepsi on campus??? —Jedron

The Junction and Trudy's might have Pepsi.

  • No, Pepsi is impossible to find on campus.
  • i think all the machines are coke so you wont find it there. but i do know that the aggie store and the coho sell pepsi's. you probably just have to look where coke isnt sponsoring something

2007-05-13 15:04:06   I do like the ice cream machines. The lid opens up and a vacuum cleaner hose machine sucks an ice cream treat and delivers it to you. —Jedron


2007-06-01 12:22:15   DONT USE THE MACHINE IN THE CHEM ANNEX BUILDING. I guarantee that you will lose your money. The bags of chips in that machine are never dispensed properly. —PatrickSing


2008-01-15 05:51:30   I would not recommend buying a drink from the soda vending machine in young hall. i've had numerous sodas dispensed as hot as soup. luckily the aggie store clerk was nice enough to let me trade it for a cold one —fredchen


2009-08-05 10:25:35   My roommate ate a frozen burrito from a vending machine in Olson and was throwing up for a week from it. Eat at your own risk. —ChristopherCivil


2010-06-05 22:11:36   Test Materials vending machines?! —SunjeetBaadkar


2011-05-13 16:05:35   Campus seems to have a huge number of perpetually out-of-order ice cream machines. Anyone know where I can get a mint "It's-It" around here? —JEP


2014-02-18 23:37:04   The best machines to get your sugar fix late at night are in the back of the 24 hour study room. Snacks and drinks. —NhatDo

Footnotes

1. "The Mrak Hall vending machines often fail to release your purchase, particularly bagged snacks. Calling the posted phone number for a refund is fruitless — no one answers or returns voicemail messages."
2. "Beware of the vending machines in the Basement of Olson Hall. If you put a dollar in and want change back, they will not give you your money back."
