The partnership includes the Fort Garry Campus, Bannatyne Campus, the University of Manitoba Students’ Union, St. Paul’s College, St. Andrews College and St. John’s College.

Among the changes with Coke’s new contract are a new interactive vending machine in University Centre and the ability to use both credit and debit forms of payment to make purchases in all machines. The vending machines will be installed on both campuses over the summer.
