Updated: March 8, 2013

On  Monday, March 11, 2013 Kelly Dining Center is scheduled to resume full food service operations and all other Campus Dining locations will resume normal hours of operation.

The project to install a temporary roof membrane after the February blizzard is complete and after final inspection it was determined that the upper level of the building may be opened.

Over the weekend, FSA and Campus Dining will complete final preparation of the kitchen and customer areas in Kelly Dining Center. Equipment, furnishings and staff temporarily moved to other campus locations will return to Kelly Dining Center and food product will be delivered and prepared for Monday’s opening. No disruption to posted weekend meal service is expected.

First and foremost, FSA would like to thank our students for their patience while this disruptive but necessary project displaced them and forced them to seek alternative dining locations. FSA understands and appreciates that this was a great inconvenience. We also extend our appreciation to Campus Residences staff who accomplished the roof repair under difficult weather conditions, and to the Campus Dining staff who met meal service needs at other campus locations.
