Dining Services

  • Full Service Only: All stations in The Caf will be served by dining associates. Customers will be handed disposable silverware and a disposable cup upon ordering at the station of your choice! Looking for breads, cereal, and milk? These items will be served by a dining associate at the salad bar. Need a drink refill? Please get a new disposable up from on the food stations.
  • Reduced Seating: To ensure safe social distancing, seating in The Caf has been reduced to 50% capacity. The Tech Pride Room located beside The Caf will offer additional seating.
  • Directional Signage: Dining Services has placed directional signage both on the floors and on the counters to ensure adequate flow of traffic. Please remember to keep 6 feet between you and your neighbor.
  • Face Coverings Required: Face coverings will be worn by all dining associates and they are required for all guests when you are not sitting at your table.
  • Steak N’ Shake is Now The Caf Express: Steak N’ Shake is temporarily closed for the fall semester and become The Caf Express. All students and staff now have the option to go to The Caf Express to get a hot to-go meal from the Homestyle Station.

University Bookstore

  • The University Store has a designated entrance and exit.
  • There will be floor markers in place for lines at the textbook department and registers that indicate where to stand. Please keep 6 feet between you and your neighbor whenever possible.
  • We are requiring that anyone in the bookstore wear a face covering since social distancing may be difficult during peak times.
  • The University Store is required to limit the number of customers in the store at one time so there may be a short wait before you allowed to enter.
  • Online Textbook Orders: We encourage students to ship their orders to their home or local address (all order over $49 ship for free). For in-store pick-ups of online orders, we are working diligently to have a plan in place to distribute textbooks to students in the safest and most efficient way. To combat high volumes seen in the University Store for students electing to pick-up in-store, we will be offering an alternative pick-up location as well as curbside pick-up.

We are encouraging all students to place their textbook order online to reduce the traffic of in-store customers. When placing your order online, you will have the option for it to be shipped to your home / local address, or for in-store pickup.
