Coronavirus Information

Student Housing and Dining Services wants to help students understand their options so we created and will be updating a webpage with frequently-asked questions for students who live and eat on campus.

Please also read the chancellor's message about transitioning to remote learning during spring quarter and the Student Affairs frequently-asked questions for students to understand more about remote learning and the campus support and services available to you.

  • Waste diversion and composting
  • Seating capacity of 300, serving 1,500 residents

16,000 sq.ft. of renoved space into dynamic, attractive, and sustainable facility.

Five culinary platforms have replaced the cafeteria-style serving area. Platforms include Harvest Bakery, Tomato St. Grill, Seasonality featuring entree's with seasonal and local foods, Saucey hosting hand-crafted pizzas and pasta, and Fresh Inspirations serving hand-tossed salads and carved meats.

Expanded and enhanced seating. We've converted the compartmentalized seating rooms into large, open dining areas by removing partition walls and creating a two-story space in the public market area with an opening in the second floor.

Additional enhancements:

  • Mechanical system improvements.
  • Lighting energy use reduction.
  • Renewable energy.
  • Non-chemical water softening.
  • Display boards, electronic displays, and equipment monitoring devices.
