Residential Dining

Heilman Dining Center

Listed in 'Southern Living' as one of the south's most stunning campus dining halls, the award-winning Heilman Dining Center is located lake-side across from the iconic Boatwright Library. Due to the Univeristy's current pandemic phase and Dining Services Safe Dining protocol, the traditional menu selections have changed and many of the favorites, bars and made-to-order selections are now being served in one of four zone areas. All of the great selections are available for dine-in or packed to go.  Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, access to the Heilman Center  building is limited to students, faculty and staff only.  No community visitors are allowed to dine on campus at this time. The Heilman Dining Center accepts cash, checks, major credit cards, department charges, Dining Dollars, and SpiderCards.
