Dining Services is happy to be back serving the campus community! While our commitment to providing fresh, daily options remains paramount, some of our goals are now harder to reach than ever before. We are not excluded from the challenges that currently plague the hospitality industry. We are having difficulty staffing all of our venues for the extended hours we typically operate.  Many of our vendors are having difficulty hiring truck drivers, for example, which is causing product delays. We are working hard to mitigate these issues. Dining is aggressively hiring to fill our open positions across campus and at the Trolley Stop. Our teams will continue to push forward in providing a great dining experience to the campus community.

We know guests may have experienced longer wait times in certain cafes as the beginning of each semester always proves to be very busy. We thank students and the campus community for their patience as we navigate through this time efficiently and safely.

Transact mobile ordering is an option for meal periods in most units. Read information on downloading the Transact app and specific mobile ordering times. 

The Clay Ketchum Room in Marquis remains open for lunch daily, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. For menu updates, check out our Facebook page.
