The campus population is much smaller on the weekends.  While we know there are still students on campus, the number of students we are serving Friday night through Sunday evening does not support opening additional locations.

Dining halls are near but not always connected to residence halls. Many students enjoy trying other dining venues on weekends when they have more time. The online map and links to menus at each venue can help with planning your trip to dining locations.

End dates for dining plans depend on the semester. In the Fall semester, dining plans end on December 31. In the Spring semester, dining plans end on the last day of finals. Summer dining plans will end approximately one week after the summer session ends.

If you have a dining plan for both the Fall and Spring semesters, your balance at the end of the fall semester will roll forward to the spring. All dining plans will be cleared the day after the last day of finals for the spring semester. All summer dining plans will be cleared approximately one week after the summer session ends.

Zoutrition is an online tool that can help you make wise choices to meet your nutritional goals when dining in Campus Dining Service locations. You will find this tool helps to identify and select well-balanced meals, check the nutritional content of your food choices, identify possible allergens and food intolerances and select preferences for specific types of diets such as vegetarian or vegan.

Sunshine Sushi is not operated by Campus Dining Services. The Zoutrition software allows us to enter the nutritional information for everything we purchase and recipes our chefs develop. Because Campus Dining Services does not purchase or prepare the dishes at Sunshine Sushi, we are unable to use Zoutrition to reflect that information at this time.

If you would like to make an appointment with a dietitian, learn more on the dining website.

Based on feedback from students, we have moved to more customizable a la carte options over all-you-care-to-eat dining halls. Food in cafeteria-style halls is prepared in large quantities making it difficult to offer many customizable options.
