Face coverings must be worn at all times in accordance with the University’s Face Covering Policy. Please apply face covering prior to entering the building.

Please note that breakfast in the dining halls ends promptly at 10 a.m. in order for the space to be properly sanitized and prepared for lunch.

Thank you for your support in helping us keep the dining halls safe for all.
