Dining on campus

During a time of challenge, UW Dining remains committed, as always, to meeting your food and beverage needs on campus. Over the past several months, we developed strategies and protocols to bring you a full range of dining and beverage options in a safe and welcoming atmosphere.

Hours of operation may change during the quarter, please check before you head out.

Open dining locations

Carefully crafted and streamlined menus and service

  • Quick-service, hot-food options, with some prepackaged food at peak times.
  • Our traditional salad bars, build-your-own bars, soup stations, condiments and bakery items will be pre-packaged or staff-served.
  • We’ve expanded our District Market To Go options to provide more variety, including re-heatable, pre-packaged entrees.

Logistics to keep you healthy

For Local Point, Center Table and District Market, we have the following physical distancing system and food preparation in place:

  • You will enter the restaurant or store via one door and exit through another side of the building.
  • We’ll have Social Distancing Ambassadors (SDAs) stationed at entrances and exits to monitor and modulate customer flow.
  • In order to adhere to physical distancing guidelines, we are limiting the maximum capacity of the facilities to 300, including staff, at any given time.
  • While all menu items at Local Point and Center Table will be served in compostable, to-go containers, limited in-house dining will be available at these locations.
  • Local Point and Center Table building capacities permit some line queuing with the proper line spacing at each station, as well as additional overflow queuing space when you enter the buildings.
  • As your schedule permits, consider coming for meals on the early or late side of breakfast, lunch or dinner hours, when lines will be shorter. In addition, hot food options are also available all day at the District Market.

Thanks for your cooperation and patience as we implement this new system! If you have any questions or feedback, contact UW Dining at uwdining@uw.edu.

Staff and student jobs

Because of the adjustments to service and operations hours at HFS, we are not accepting employment applications currently. Thank you for your interest in working at HFS.

Student emergency aid program

With the adjustments to service and operations hours at HFS, some student employees might be experiencing financial uncertainty due to losing shifts because of these changes. The University has a resource in place for students in this situation, the Student Emergency Aid program. Student employees can learn more at the UW Student Emergency Aid website.
