Dining On Campus
Your dining experience is more than great food. It is community experience centered on culinary expertise, fresh ingredients, healthy options and a shared sense of environmental and social responsibility.
During Move-In, the Louis J. Esposito dining center will be open for new students beginning Tuesday, August 20 at lunch and, for returning students, beginning Saturday August 24 for dinner. (This is when Meal Plans officially start. ) It will open for all students January 19 for the start of the Spring 2014 semester. We have three dining centers on Main Campus. The Louis J. Esposito Dining Center is located in Johnson and Hardwick halls, the Valaida S. Walker Dining Court located in the Howard Gittis Student Center, and the new Mitchell and Hilarie Morgan Residential and Dining Complex is our newest addition, opening in Fall 2013. The Esposito Dining Center serves all-you-care-to-eat options, while the Walker Dining Court and dining facility in the Mitchell and Hilarie Morgan Residential and Dining Complex serves food a la carte with a meal equivalency. We also have locations spread across campus in many of the academic buildings that accept meal plans for extra convenience to the students. For more information on locations and hours go to TUdining.com.
Guests in the Dining Centers
On Tuesday, August 20, Wednesday, August 21 and Thursday, August 22, the dining centers are open to family members of new students for move-in. Students can always bring guests to any dining center, but they must pay for meals, unless the resident has a Premium Meal Plan or have added a Guest Meal Plan to their account. Guest Meals can be added at any time online with the MyHousing system, or at the Office of University Housing and Residential Life. For a full listing of Meal Plans go to Tudining.com/Plans.
