Diverse Dining Experiences

The third floor of the MSOE Campus Center has undergone a major transformation into a student dining and study commons. The new Robert Spitzer Dining Commons is the primary dining area for resident and commuter students, faculty, staff and campus visitors. The dining commons is open seven days a week for full meal service 7 a.m. – 10:30 p.m.
 
While it is common practice for diners to socialize after a meal, this practice is discouraged during the pandemic. As is the rule on campus, facial coverings are required in the dining commons while you are not actively eating or drinking. You also should wash your hands before and after eating. Furniture in the space has been placed to encourage social distancing, and floor markings are in place to help direct foot traffic.
 
During the pandemic, capacity will be reduced in the servery and the dining area. When entering the servery, you will swipe your MSOE ID card at the entrance. Guests are able to purchase a meal pass at the register.
 
MSOE challenges students to maximize their potential, but that challenge requires healthy and nutritious dining options and collaborative spaces. The dining commons is an intentionally designed space to increase and enhance the capacity of food service to support additional students, faculty and staff, and build community with new dining options and places to meet, study and socialize.

Students’ expectations for healthy eating options are met through sustainable practices and locally sourced ingredients. The dining area is truly a campus-wide dining option, rather than a “dorm-only cafeteria.”
