The Commons Dining Hall

Situated at the center of the first-year residence halls, the Commons offers several dining stations. These include the popular Asian Pacifica, a savory grill program, pasta prepared to order, a deli and Theme Cuisine. If you have special dietary needs, visit For Your Health and be amazed at all the great food waiting for you. Commons Dining Hall also features our "Simply to Go" program where students in a hurry can swipe for a prepackaged meal that includes choice of entree, side, dessert and beverage. Commons is the only dining hall that offers "Late Night Dining" where we open the doors for an hour at 10:30 pm and offer breakfast for dinner for those late night snackers.
