  • Excellence

    Our mission is to provide excellence: excellent culinary experiences, excellent events and educational opportunities, and excellent customer service.

    Our professional culinary and administrative teams strive to offer the very best food and service experience for our campus community and guests. Daily meals, pop-up events, and educational opportunities to learn more about food and culture, all add to the experience. Memories made in D-hall, conversations over coffee, ideas and insights shared with a meal—food and excellence are central to them all.

  • Healthy Dining

    Every menu created at the University of Richmond balances deliciousness with nutrition. Our dietitians and chefs work closely to plan menus that offer traditional favorites, variety, and occasionally, adventure. Each semester we offer over 25 special events to entertain and educate students on the cultural, environmental, and personal impact that food can have in their lives.

    Our goal is to nourish while teaching students to "eat smart"; encouraging them to make healthy choices and take a holistic approach to their relationship with food.  

  • Sustainability

    Sustainability is woven throughout Dining Service’s mission to nourish the University of Richmond campus community. From green purchasing, efficient storage, and thoughtful food preparation processes to waste reduction, recycling, and environmentally sound cleaning practices, we remain focused on being good stewards of our institutional resources and strive to be leaders in these efforts within our industry.
