Mobile ordering will be available at Gilbert’s Café, Lower Farinon, Simon’s, and ECO throughout the Spring semester. In addition to serving as a convenient and contactless order-ahead option, Transact is also integral to our ability to feed quarantined students.

Should a student test positive for COVID-19, we will enable a new “Isolation Meals” payment method on their Transact app account, which will allow them to order 3 meals per day regardless of the meal plan they’ve selected. These students will be able to order on the app, indicate their location, and their meal will be delivered to them directly during the designated operating hours.  Meals will be delivered outside the isolation building and stored in a covered container.

For students who have been placed under college-mandated quarantine, but who have not tested positive for COVID-19, we ask that they first consider ordering via the app, and have a  friend pick up meals for them. If this option is unavailable, students may utilize a socially distanced take-out process to pick up meals. Students will place their dining order via the app, wait until they receive a notification that their order is ready, and then pick up their meal.
