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, 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.

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. We are the people who manage Bear Express accounts and the Campus Card. We manage and oversee laundry and vending services on campus.

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.


PACES partners with North Country Savings Bank to provide an ATM in the Student Union lobby and with TMS for the ATM in Maxcy Hall. Join our PACES Dining Services Facebook Group for menu updates and like our College Store Facebook Page for sale and event information!
