Dining on campus

Last updated: 7/1/2021

  • The University and La Salle Dining Services continue to work together to align practices with the latest guidance for the safety of our students, employees, and partners. All on-campus dining facilities will follow current CDC guidelines. Based on current CDC guidelines, all dining locations for the Fall 2021 semester will be open for indoor dining. Treetops Cafe will continue to serve as the COVID-19 Testing Center site and will remain closed for dining.
  • Dining plans have been created to support the change in dining offerings on campus. Our goal is to provide flexible dining options that preserve the health of our community while providing the best possible dining experience.  Selection for dining plans is now open and will close on September 11th.
  • All residential students are required to have a dining plan during the Fall semester. This measure supports a healthier campus, as residential students with meal plans are eligible for meal delivery in the event they need to quarantine or isolate over the course of the semester.
  • The following updates have also been made:
    • Flexible dining plans have been created with options for both in-person dining and takeaway depending on student’s preference.
    • Blue and Gold Dining Commons will be returning to an All You Care to Eat dining location and the Union Food Court will be returning to a true retail location.
    • The Dining Sidekick mobile app will still be available for ease of order and pick up in any of our Union Food Court locations.
    • The Union Market, Blue and Gold POD and Benilde POD have been reconfigured to provide more robust and healthier grab-and-go offerings. Meal exchanges will be accepted.
    • Starbucks will be returning to normal operations and capacity for the Fall semester and Dining Sidekick mobile ordering will continue to be available.
    • Saxby’s Cafe will be open during the Fall semester.
    • Outdoor seating is available throughout campus and can be utilized when weather permits.
    • La Salle Dining will continue to follow all safety and sanitation guidelines as defined by the Philadelphia Department of Public Health and the CDC.  La Salle Dining will communicate regularly with the University should any cases or concerns arise.
