Dining Procedures & Operating Hours

What procedures must be followed at each dining center?

For all dining centers on campus, entrances and exits will be clearly labeled, and alternative exits will also be used. Upon entry, students will self-swipe their ID cards after verifying their picture with the cashier. Signage will clearly state customer procedures and protocols, including requiring customers to wear face masks (properly over your mouth and nose) in all dining operations. Pre-packaged napkin and silverware packets and disposable paper products will be provided. 

Use of arrows and distancing lines on floors will be in place, as well as stanchion signage where stanchions are used. Stanchions will be utilized to assist with the flow of traffic. Staff at the entrances to the dining facilities will also help control flow and direction to maintain this lowered density.

For all dining locations, please remember to wash your hands before and after eating a meal. Please clean and wipe down your eating area as best as possible and remember to practice physical distancing while eating. No food or drink will be allowed in classrooms.
