Potsdam Auxiliary and College Educational Services

Potsdam Auxiliary and College Educational Services, Inc. (PACES) is a not-for-profit corporation operating under contract with SUNY Potsdam. PACES operates Dining Services, The College Store, The Union Market, Vending Services and a variety of administrative services. Beyond the services it provides, PACES supports SUNY Potsdam students, faculty and staff by returning a portion of their net revenues to the College to sponsor student scholarships and other programs.  That means every dollar you spend with us goes to support your education.

Our Mission is to offer high quality products and services through the provision of auxiliary services while maximizing customer value and financial return to the benefit of the larger SUNY Potsdam community.

We are the cooks, chefs, servers, managers and clean up crews at all the campus dining locations. We are the friendly faces at the College Store and the Union Market. We are the people who manage Bear Express Accounts, the SUNY Card office, and the MicroFridge Rental program. We manage and oversee laundry and vending services on campus. 

PACES contracts with North Country Savings Bank to provide ATMs on campus. They are located in the Student Union lobby and Carson Hall, adjacent to Becky's Place.

All students with North Country Savings Bank accounts receive "fee-free" ATM withdrawals at both ATMs on campus, and at all other North Country Savings Bank ATMs. Open your Free Student Checking Account at www.northcountrysavings.com.
