Summer Dining Options

Dining Options

On-campus dining is available at a number of serveries throughout campus. Group dining can be arranged as well as full-catered meals, picnics, sack lunches and barbeques.

If group dining is not arranged, participants will be given the opportunity to purchase meal credits at their group’s check-in. These credits can be loaded onto a meal card and are accepted at numerous locations around campus.
