Green Campus’ Nature-Friendly Cafe: Jr. Bee

May 3, 2015, 10:28
A new one is added to the high quality dining locations in Ayazağa Campus at the end of April. The new cafe opened under the name Jr. Bee on the area between Faculty of Civil Engineering and Şok General Store attracts attention with its moves in accord with the Green Campus philosophy.

Project according to tree

The cafe was opened by making use of the ground in the idle area of the campus and the texture of the place where the cafe is constructed is preserved. The building was planned and constructed so as to encompass two trees in the area. The living space around the trees as well has been preserved.

Recyclable cups

A wooden building was especially chosen for consistency with the environment and the green campus philosophy. Not only its tree-friendliness but its special entrance for the disabled is in line with the “Accessible İTÜ” mentality, which forms a part of the Green Campus. Jr. Bee, with its completely recyclable paper cups (biocup), supports “recycling” movement, which is another part of the Green Campus project.

Water lily pool

Jr. Bee brings a breath of fresh air to the campus with its decorative pool in its outdoor area as well. In the upcoming days the pool will fill with lilies and fish and add new color to the place.

Jr. Bee has a capacity of 130 persons indoor and 200 persons outdoor and will serve between 08.00-21.00 every day of the week.

Student price implementation

Jr. Bee implements special low prices in all its products for our students. All products can be bought at discount prices by showing the student ID to the card reader at the checkout. Sales to our staff and İTÜ’s guests are at regular prices.
Jr. Bee offers breakfast alternatives, hot – cold sandwich selections, desserts, squeezed orange juice and hot – cold beverages besides various alternatives such as çöp şiş and pide.
