University Dining

High-quality meals for every taste, budget, and schedule

Flexible dining options for diverse campuses

Each university is different, and so are our university dining solutions. We tailor our programs to support the specific needs of each campus. From multi-station dining halls to pop-up coffee shops during finals week, our experienced chefs and floor managers are prepared to satisfy any vision. At the core of our programs you’ll always find delicious food made by hand from fresh, responsibly sourced ingredients.

We believe that students and faculty shouldn’t have to leave campus to find food that fits their craving or budget. Our programs incorporate a variety of cuisines and hit a full range of price points. For occasions that require extra customization—be it an alumni dinner, a conference, or a weekly admin meeting—our catering team handles everything from planning to day-of execution.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer any student discounts or loyalty programs?

Yes! We love to incentivize and reward our customers. Each campus is different, but it's always a priority of ours to work with student organizations and university administrators to establish loyalty programs and promotions that benefit the community.

How do you manage allergies?

We have in place a comprehensive allergy policy regarding the safe sourcing, production, labeling, distribution, and service of food. Our employees receive regular training to ensure adherence to approved methods.


We have strict production and procurement policies surrounding products containing peanuts and tree nuts. Peanuts and tree nuts are not used as ingredients in any recipe developed for production within our commissary kitchen. Additionally, we take care not to purchase ingredients that were processed in a facility that uses nuts.

Top 8 Allergens

For other Top 8 allergens—including egg, dairy, gluten/wheat, soy, fish, and shellfish—we follow best practices to avoid cross contamination during production. All Top 8 allergens are included on menus and labels.
