Campus Dining has a variety of options located around campus to meet the needs of our Gaucho community. We offer everything from dine-in services to grab and go items at our convenience stores. Food and coffee carts can be found at various locations on campus and specialty coffee drinks can be purchased at Starbucks in the University Center. Check out our full service catering department or look into some great student jobs at Campus Dining Services.
UCen Dining Services has participated on the Campus Sustainability committee since 2001. We are committed to making changes in the way we provide food services in order to contribute positively to the environment. We offer many organic, partially organic, Fair Trade, natural, and locally grown or sourced products in all of our units. All of our pre and post consumer waste in the UCen is composted; our units around campus also contribute to pre-consumer composting. The majority of our coffee grounds are used by the Landscape and Grounds crew on campus to provide nitrogen to the soil and plants. We are proud of root 217, our first fully sustainable food unit, for being awarded the Best Practices Award for 2012 in Colleges and Universities for their contribution to sustainable architecture and food service.
