Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a take out option and how does it work?

Yes there is take out service. Your take out service is designed for those students that have a class or job conflict and are not able to eat in the resident dining hall during regular hours of operation. If you require take out service students are asked to show a copy of their class\work schedule to the Office of Student Affairs at least 48 hours before the conflict for verification. Your name will then be passed on to dining services.

Students cannot pick up another students meal, exceptions will be made for sick students with a note from the health center stating who would be picking up and for whom.
