Hospitality Coordinator

When you enter one of our dining centers this fall you will notice many things look different. At all dining locations you will be greeted by a Hospitality Coordinator who will be there to guide you through the dining experience. Our hospitality coordinator will also be there to ensure we do not exceed maximum space occupancy and make sure everyone has a face mask when entering. Not sure where to go or what to eat, our Hospitality Coordinators have been trained to assist you and make sure your dining experience is as smooth as possible.

We encourage students and guests to take their food to-go as much as possible. We will have seating available throughout our dining centers as well as additional dining/study pods around campus. Where possible we have placed plexi-glass tale dividers to allow for as much seating as possible in our dining rooms while maintaining appropriate physical distancing. We have also removed chairs and tables as needed to keep you safe.

Hours of Operation

Many of our hours of operation have changed to allow for necessary cleaning and sanitizing while offering you the variety and quality you expect. You can find up to date hours of operation here.

Mobile Ordering

Download the GrubHub campus app to mobile order at any dining locations on campus. We know that time is valuable for our students and want to ensure we can provide you a safe way to order your food without having to stand in line. Mobile ordering will also provide you with an opportunity to continue to order many of the custom dining options you enjoy on campus currently.


Our talented chefs have been hard at work all summer updating our menu’s for campus. Whether you dine with us at the Bears Den, DUC, Village, Parkside or any of our smaller coffee shops and cafés, you will see an abundance of new and exciting menu items to try!

Allergens and Special Dietary Needs

While we have had to make a number of adjustments to our operations and menus for the fall, our commitment to serving our students with allergies or other dietary needs remains the same. Mobile pre-ordering for allergen meals will be available through GrubHub and we are introducing a new top-8 allergen friendly station at the Bears Den. If you have any questions about dining on campus with allergies or other needs please reach out to our dietitian Rebecca Miller at
