What do I do if I can’t get to a dining facility because of an illness not related to COVID-19?

If you become ill and cannot make it to a dining unit for a meal, you may call the dining facility you normally eat in, ask for the manager on duty, and request a meal “to go.” Please provide the manager with your PeopleSoft number as well as the name of the individual who will be picking up your meal. When the designated person picks up the meal for you, they must swipe in their own card, swipe in the requesting student’s card, and ask for the unit manager to assist with the take-out.

North Dining Hall to Transition to Quarantine-Only

As the weather turns colder and daylight savings time approaches, Dining Services will transition the North Campus dining hall into a facility exclusively for quarantined students. The change starts this Friday, Oct. 2, and runs through the end of the semester.

Buckley’s dining hall will continue to operate as a quarantine-only location as well, but adding the North Campus location will shorten the distance for some students. Both units will maintain their normal serving hours, and quarantined students can dine at either location.

Non-quarantined students who would normally dine at North can dine instead at Northwest, which is next door and has the capacity to accommodate those guests.
