Dining Room Options

Students who choose to carry a meal plan have the convenience of enjoying meals at any of our dining rooms on campus... including the UC Food Court and Bears Bistro.

Our dining rooms offer a large variety of foods, including fresh fruits and veggies, vegetarian and vegan options, allergen-free options... and Holmes Dining Hall & Tobey-Kendel Dining Room are both "all you care to eat" locations that have a gourmet salad bar available every day. There are to-go options available as well if you don't have time to sit down and eat with us.

Hungry and don't know which dining room to try? We have LOTS of choices. Dining room menus are posted online every Friday, so take a look at what's being served this week. You're not required to eat at any one location, so why don't you try them all!? Check out the Dining Room hours of operation here.

Dining Dollars

In a rush and just want to stop by for a cup of coffee and a bagel? Why don't you use your Dining Dollars??! Dining Dollars are very handy to have loaded onto your UNC Card, and we have lots of different locations where they are accepted. Check out the Retail Dining hours of operation here.

Registered Dietitian Available

Do you have any specific dietary issues that you need us to know about? We can usually accommodate most requests, but we recommend you speak with our Registered Dietitian about it first... he will be able to tell you what we can offer. You can contact Matthew Doyle, RDN, at 970-351-1961 or matthew.doyle@unco.edu.


Can't find what you're looking for? Have more questions? No problem... contact Dining Services at 970-351-2652, email us at diningservices@unco.edu, or stop by Tobey-Kendel Hall (room 120) and ask us in person! "We Feed The Bears!"
