Dining Services Update


Friday, August 29, 2014

As work continues on the University Center Refresh project, the meal service schedule and locations will be the same as they were last week. Furniture deliveries, electrical work, painting, floor coverings, and installation of the skylight all occurred last week. Contractors continue with final touches for The Grove dining room this week, and once the finishing work and inspections are completed, Dining Services will open the exciting new dining area. Once the dining area is open, Dining Services will be able to offer late night food options in The Grove dining area until the Starbucks Café and the P.O.D. convenience store areas are opened later this month.

Thank you for your patience and Boxer Spirit as the University Center Refresh project continues toward completion soon to provide you a contemporary and exciting space for dining, meetings and socialization. In the meantime, here is a review of the current procedure for meal service: 

Dining Services will provide meals in the Multipurpose Room (MPR) on the ground floor of the UC. You can pick up your meal at the MPR and dine under the tents just outside the building. Just swipe your Boxer Card ID when you enter if you are on a meal plan, or pay with Dining Dollars, Cash or Credit. And remember, if you are on the exciting new All Access meal plan, you can return to the entry door to pick up an additional helping if you're still hungry.

Hours for meal service for the week of Tuesday, Sept. 2 through Friday, Sept. 5 are:

  • Breakfast: 7:30 to 9:30 a.m.
  • Lunch: 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Dinner: 5 to 7:30 p.m.

Weekend meal service hours on Labor Day (Monday, Sept. 1), Saturday, Sept. 6 and Sunday, Sept. 7 are:

  • Brunch: 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
  • Dinner: 5 to 6:30 p.m.

For added convenience, the following food service options are also available:

The Einstein Bros Bagel kiosk inside Scott Hall is open on weekdays (except holidays) between 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dining Dollars, Cash and Credit accepted.

Dining Dollars can also be used for on-campus delivery from Pizza Schmizza. Use your 7-digit Boxer Card number as you would a credit card. Call 503-359-5320 to place your order.

The new P.O.D. Market and Starbucks will open in late-September. Follow us on Instagram @GroveDining for updates and deals.
