Welcome to UNC Dining Services... where "We Feed The Bears!"

We are a full-service dining operation for the entire campus community... including students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and guests of the university. Students (of course) are our primary focus, but we are continually striving to offer new and enticing menu items for all our valued customers.

We offer the full dining room experience at several different locations on campus: Holmes Dining Hall, Tobey-Kendel Dining Room, the UC Food Court, and Bears Bistro (located in the University Center around the corner from the Food Court).

Dietary concerns are not a problem

Dining Services has a Registered Dietitian on staff who can give guidance on eating disorders, food allergies, dietary restrictions, and nutritional updates for a healthy body. Some students place eating healthy, well-balanced meals "on the back burner" during the college years, and we're here to help keep students on the right nutritional track. Contact us at 970-351-2652 or diningservices@unco.edu to make an appointment with our Registered Dietitian.

We have more than Dining Rooms

Dining Services also offers quite a few Retail Dining options at the University Center where students can use their Dining Dollars. You don't have to go off campus to get your convenience items now that Munchy Mart is open! Bears Mo'Jo Coffee Co, Einstein Bros® Bagels and Subway® provide students with an alternative to dining room fare, while Bears Bistro allows students to use their meal plan or Dining Dollars - it's up to you!

Not at the University Center but craving coffee? If you are near the Michener Library, Kepner Hall, or Turner Hall, you're in luck!! Coffee Corner at Michener is a student favorite for a study break, Coffee Corner at Kepner keeps students going during the lunch breaks, and Coffee Corner at Turner is quickly becoming a student favorite - it even has a walk up window!

These Retail Dining locations, along with our UNC Catering department, allow a variety of meal options for all students and visitors to UNC at affordable prices (visit the UNC Catering Web Site). We also manage the Athletics Concessions... Go Bears!!

G. Hal Brown, FMPWe hire a lot of students

Dining Services also serves as one of the largest student employers on campus, hiring 400-500 students throughout the entire year to work in our various dining areas. The pay is competitive, and managers schedule work around school schedules. Advancement can be quick for energetic and dedicated workers.

It is my hope that when considering a part-time job to help defray those college expenses, students consider Dining Services as a viable alternative (click here for an application).

Feel free to drop by our main office in Tobey-Kendel Hall to introduce yourself and learn more about what is always a favorite topic - FOOD!
