What is the plan for university dining? (Updated June 17)
Purdue Dining & Culinary has been working to make sure we adhere to social distance and other health and safety guidelines. At the same time, we want students to have options, with nutritious and high-quality food. In addition to our dining court facilities, we have added new retail locations where your swipes and Dining Dollars will be accepted. There will also be new On-The-Go options on the academic side of campus, as well.
Meals at all facilities will be carryout only to begin the semester. Then, the plan is to phase in seating capacity when the university’s senior leadership (and in accordance with state and local regulations) says it is safe to do so. You have the option of taking your meal back to your room, or eat in a sanitized socially-distanced space (but keep in mind there will be fewer public spaces open and less furniture to accommodate students so we recommend the best option is taking your meal back to your room).
You’ll notice new entrances and exits in dining facilities to help keep everyone at a safe distance. Please be patient with us during peak meal times. The goal is to get everyone safely through the lines as quickly as possible
