Six unique spots to spend your Bevo Bucks

Emma George

Bevo Bucks, which is a part of the dining hall package, means that mouthwatering pizza, comfy Co-op clothing and 24-hour slurpees are only minutes away from dorm halls, but with a little bit of creativity, Bevo Bucks can buy a semester’s worth of meaningful memories across Austin. The Daily Texan compiled a list of unique vendors where students can get a bigger bang for their Bevo buck.

Birds Barbershop

Get a fresh haircut for the start of the fall semester at Birds Barbershop. A small boutique that caters to students, it’s easy to stop by and book a trim. Cuts range from $20-$70, well within the Bevo Bucks range. 

Gelato Paradiso

Visit South Congress Street, an Austin attraction that features iconic shopping, restaurants, and most importantly, cold desserts. Cool down after a day of window shopping at Gelato Paradiso, a frozen paradise tucked behind busier shops. Flavors include stracciatella, mandorla, fragola cheesecake and more.

The Foundry

Students can unleash their inner artist at The Foundry, a makerspace located in the Fine Arts Library. Bevo Bucks can be used for the 3D printer, sculpture tools, photo lab or woodshop. Design one-of-a-kind dorm decor and book an appointment at this University resource. 


Use Bevo Bucks to enhance a workout with a ShakeSmart fuel up. With a convenient location inside Gregory Gymnasium, this health-focused vendor provides low-calorie smoothies and on-the-go meals. Their acai bowls make for an especially convenient snack when dashing between classes. 

Private Stock

Exhausted the Co-op’s selection of clothing? Head to Private Stock, a one-of-a-kind clothing store on East Sixth Street, for a unique fall wardrobe. Private Stock offers a selection of casual street-style wear for under $50, perfect for Speedway travel and the lecture hall.

Resurrected Games

Find fun board games to play with newfound friends at Resurrected Games, a one-stop game shop within walking distance of campus. Check out a plethora of role-playing equipment or unique party games at this quirky independent shop on The Drag. Pick up a Funko Pop or two with Bevo Bucks. 

Editor’s note: A previous version of this article stated “the 3D printer, sculpture tools, photo lab (and) woodshop” were located at the UT Visual Arts Center, however, this has been corrected to The Foundry in the Fine Arts Library. The Texan regrets this error.
