Dining Services Featured Item: Colorado Cuisine

All areas of the country have a bounty of foods and beverages to offer, but there are some that stick out as being unique or specialized to an area. When people come to Colorado, what should they have to eat or drink before leaving and take back the story of how great it was to their friends and family? Executive Chef Essig has a few ideas; find out more on the Dining Services website.

Dining Services offers a variety of dining options in Holmes Dining Hall, Tobey-Kendel Dining Room, the University Center Food Court and Bears Bistro, where you can enjoy meals for $5.85 (includes tax) each using the Faculty/Staff Payroll Deduction Plan (meals and purchases at campus retail dining outlets are deducted monthly from your paycheck).
