Located in the Gray Campus Center, Commons is the main dining facility on campus.  During the academic year, Commons is open 7 days a week and welcomes student, staff, faculty, and campus visitors to experience our made-from-scratch cooking, abundant salad bar, and house baked goods.  Jump start your morning with a made-to-order breakfast sandwich, fresh pastries, fresh seasonal fruit, or a hearty breakfast special from the grill.   Lunch features our taqueria, made to order deli sandwiches, comfort food at Daily Planet, hand tossed pizza, made from scratch soups, and a selection of desserts.  At dinner, guests have the option to create their own dish at either Carve or Rice Bowl station, or chose from scratch made pasta dishes, delectable vegan/vegetarian entrees, or a made to order item from our grill station.  Our salad bar always features produce sourced from local farms, fresh fruit, and a variety of composed salads.  In a hurry?  Check out our healthy options in our grab n go area.

Meal Plans

We offer a variety of meal plans to fit your lifestyle. The meal plans operate on a declining balance or debit system. Depending on the plan selected, students begin each semester with a set amount of meal plan dollars or “points”. Students then draw down on their balance as they purchase food. If a student runs out of points they can add additional money throughout the semester. To inquire about meal plan sign-ups or more information, please stop by the Bon Appétit office or the Res Life office.
