Leonardo’s Lounge is the social lounge and convenience store of Carleton Engineering, brought to you by CSES! Cheapest food on campus, and if you're up for a game of euchre, Settlers of Catan, Risk, chess, or just feeling chatty, then Leo's is your place. Leo's is 100% volunteer-run by regular students like you putting in one-hour shifts each week!

Leo’s Lounge was constructed in the summer of 1996 and completed on September 16th of that year. It was only made possible by the volunteer time and renovation skills of dedicated students. Leo’s has since changed looks many times, but it always embraces the spirit in which it was created.


Leo’s accepts cash, credit, debit, and even Canadian Tire money at face value!

This year's General Managers (GMs) can be reached by emailing

The Academic Concerns Form is one that can be used by any undergraduate engineering student. The goal of the form is to provide a way for students to voice any concerns that they may have regarding their academic experience at Carleton. These concerns will be dealt with by the Vice-President Academic in conjunction with the Faculty of Engineering and Design promptly.

To submit feedback or complaints via email, feel free to contact directly!

At the beginning of each semester, CSES opens up its Textbook Trade where students looking to sell their textbooks can do so in a reliable and efficient manner using CSES's shelves!


We track all books and prices; if a student has purchased your textbook, you will be notified and all money will be returned to you. This means 100% of the profit is yours: unlike other book re-sellers, CSES takes no commission. The Textbook Trade is a free service run out of our office for all of our members. You set the price, you get the profit once it sells. It's as easy as that.


Contact our Textbook Director at

The Fall 2020 Textbook Trade will be running from September 9 onwards

Sign up now here: 



The Textbook Library is a resource offered by CSES to help undergraduate students access common and specialty engineering textbooks. Textbooks can be borrowed for a week at a time from the CSES Office (3390 ME) for FREE!
