Residential Student Dining

Memorial Hall now includes four areas to provide capacity in keeping with “distance dining” that aligns with state Department of Public Health guidance. Take-out options are available. 

Updated dining hall hours reflect the time needed to sanitize all touch points daily. All tables and chairs are cleaned and sanitized after use.

All cashier stations offer touchless payment and campus ID scanning.

Commuter Dining

Due to COVID-19 social distancing requirements, the University cannot sell commuter meal plans. However, Devil's Den and Starbucks are open for the semester to serve the entire campus community. The University will monitor the capacity of the residential dining halls to determine if commuter meal plans can be sold later in the semester. Please check back for updates.

Take-out options are available at Memorial Hall.

All cashier stations offer touchless payment and campus ID scanning; cash is also accepted.

  • Touchless entryways have been installed to limit physical contact between staff and students.
