NDSU Dietary Services

*Please note, NDSU's centralized production bakery is located in the lower level of the West Dining Center. It uses tree nut and peanut ingredients, but every effort is made to avoid cross contact with the upper-level dining center.  


West is located between the high-rise residence halls of Seim, Thompson, Sevrinson, Pavek, and Cater. All of these halls also have direct tunnel access to the WDC so residents do not have to brave the cold or change out of their slippers to grab a bite to eat. Physical location is 1500 15th Ave. N., Fargo, ND.
