  Exciting changes are coming to UR Dining for Fall 2020.

  • GRUB HUB online ordering will be available for all campus cafes and retail dining locations.  Order lunch, snacks or coffee while sitting in your room, class or office and pick it up on your way across campus. Lots of delicious new selections to choose from!
  • All your favorite retail operations will be open this fall.  Seating in some locations will be eliminated due to physical distancing guidelines but carryout will be available.
  • Exciting menu changes in all locations like house-made pizza in the Cellar for pickup! The Cellar will not have seating available though and consequently alcoholic beverages will not be available.
  • Residential dining, ‘all you care to eat’ will have two locations at lunch and dinner in two different buildings for your convenience and to eliminate long physical distancing lines.   Both will serve the same menu. 
    • Heilman Dining Center will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with limited seating due to physical distancing restrictions. Meals to go will be available with the same menu offerings.
    • The Alice Haynes room in the Commons will be the second ‘all you care to eat’ dining location with a meals to go option open for lunch Monday-Friday and for dinner Monday-Thursday. 
  • UR Dining will be partnering with Pepsi as the beverage of choice for campus.  We are excited with the large assortment of great brands Pepsi brings to campus including Gatorade, Starbucks, Aquafina, Naked, Lipton, and Tropicana as well as the flagship Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, and Mountain Dew brands.

    • Dietary counseling is available to anyone with restrictions.  Special diet meals and selections will be available at the Heilman Dining Center.  For more information please contact, Karen Hensley, RD at
  • Catering will offer value meals and special options for receptions, meals, and events that adhere to current covid restrictions.
  • For students who may need to be isolated or quarantined, a special daily meal delivery will be available.
  • All covid best practices are in place to keep diners safe including rigorous cleaning schedules, physical distancing, health screening for all employees, masks, and queuing systems to prevent overcrowding.

UR Dining has been very busy planning for August.  Dining may seem a bit different in the fall with a covid environment, but look for an exciting and delicious variety of food all over campus.
