The Commons is not simply a dining hall: It is the nation's largest LEED-Gold certified collegiate dining facility; a farm-to-campus endeavor; a collection of global cuisine across nine unique platforms; a meeting and event space utilized by the entire community; and an inviting place for students to gather, socialize, study, and even work part-time. It is truly a venerable heart of the campus.
Each of The Commons' nine unique dining venues feature menus with items that change on a daily basis, offering remarkable variety. Additionally, as reflected in the menus included, each venue serves a different type of cuisine, representative of a complete culinary experience.
Recipes are prepared in small batches to ensure low holding times and the freshest possible meals for guests. Many items are made-to-order, using seasonal ingredients that are sourced locally for freshness and as part of our culinary sustainability initiatives.
Vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options are available daily, including pizza, pasta and dessert items.
