About and Location
The Oasis Commissary is Kings Court English House’s in-house convenience store. We are located on the ground floor of English House, across the hall from the elevators and the English House dining hall. Due to its convenient location and low prices, Oasis is the first stop for residents who need a snack during a late night study session, a drink after a hard workout, or cleaning supplies for their room.

Oasis strives to be the best option for the student population it was created to serve. Given its special status as both a University-affiliated food provider and a city-recognized food retailer, Oasis can provide competitive prices on items ranging from drinks to chips to supplies. Such savings translate directly to student savings, resulting in our ability to sell at cheaper prices than CVS and Wawa!
