Due to COVID-19, there will be no dine-in services until further notice. For residents with meal plans, meals will be packaged to-go and can be picked up at the locations listed below.

Small Retail Mart Opening Spring 2021

A small retail mart with your favorite snacks, drinks, and grab-n-go items will open at City Eats in the spring of 2021. 
We want to hear what items you’d like to see available in the mart. Complete our brief survey when you pick up your meal at City Eats starting January 25, 2021. 


Residential Dining Services will take the following steps to minimize risk of exposure to COVID-19:

  • Clean and disinfect all surfaces every 30 minutes
  • Wear PPE, such as gloves and face coverings
  • Maintain a 6-foot distance from others
  • Clear protective barriers at the front desk and hand sanitizer stations have been installed


Residents are required to wear a face covering when picking up your meal and we ask that you maintain a 6-foot distance while waiting to order or pick-up your meal.

  • Lunch & Dinner | Entrée, a side tossed salad, dessert of the day, and a beverage
