fun, friends and food are on the menu!

A lot of change has come to Campus Dining over the past year with updated venues, menus and programs, and we’re excited to share some brand-new culinary experiences. Local favorite Scout Coffee Co. is here, a new market is open in the UU, and there is a new Health Shack venue near the Kennedy Library. Building 19 (formerly the Avenue) is under renovation, so we created two food truck villages. We have new outdoor eating areas, increased Kosher to-go options, Village Market is now Market Poly Canyon and offers more grab-and-go, as well as heat-and-eat meals, and the list goes on and on. In short, we’ve created experiences to savor and we’re excited to welcome you home.

Grubhub

Campus Dining switched completely to Grubhub for ordering this past year and it proved to be an efficient way to order, and an effective means of lessening crowds. Let’s keep it going. Grubhub is accepted across campus and can be tied to your dining plan.

Outdoor Eating Areas

Outdoor Eating Areas

Last year we leveled up our outdoor seating, and eating game by adding more than 200 tables, 400 chairs, 200 brightly colored umbrellas, 20 Adirondack chairs, and most importantly 30 new WiFi hotspots across campus. Look for additional outdoor spaces at the new food truck park at Mott lawn. SLO is a great place to dine al fresco.

Cashless Purchases

Campus Dining learned a lot over the last year, chief among the lessons was how to keep our community safe. With this in mind, Campus Dining venues are going completely cashless to ensure a contactless process for our staff and customers. Cash-only customers can exchange cash for a card at Market Grand Ave, or the University Store.
