Take-Out Option  

Take-out meals are offered at both resident Dine-In Locations (West Side Dining and East Side Dining) for students who prefer the value and choices of the Dine-In experience, but occasionally do not have the time to eat there because of other commitments.

For students who have a greater need for flexibility, meal plan options with more Dining Dollars should be considered.

How to Take-Out at Dine-In:

Take-out is offered to students who either do not have time to sit and enjoy a meal at Dine-In or those who wish to take their food to go.

  1. When swiping into Dine-In, request a Take-Out meal
  2. You will receive a drink cup/lid and one disposable clamshell container
  3. The receipt will remain with the cashier as you choose your meal and drink
  4. The container must be able to close. No other food or drink can be removed
  5. When you leave, you will pick up your receipt
  6. Enjoy your meal!

Payment options:

  1. If you are on an unlimited meal plan, you may request a Take-Out meal once per day.
  2. If you are on a block meal plan, you may request a Take-Out meal once per day.
  3. Students using Dining Dollars, Wolfie Wallet, cash or credit/debit will be charged the appropriate door rate.
