Dining Center Occupancy

Due to new guidelines and restrictions that help our campus mitigate the risk of COVID-19, Dining Center occupancy has been reduced. Our occupancy tracker allows you to see the busiest times so you can avoid lines and dine-in with friends. The busiest times are usually 12:30-1:30pm and 5:45-6:45pm on the weekends. If we are near max capacity, the tracker will show RED. This means food must be taken to-go, and there may be lines. If you would like to dine-in, please stop in before or after that time!
