Dining Services

The Metz dining services team is preparing venues to serve members of the campus community in accordance with health and safety protocols.

  • All dining staff must always wear face masks and gloves while working and interacting with the public.
  • Dining services staff must follow infection prevention guidelines including staying home when ill; practicing physical distancing whenever possible at work; practicing proper hand hygiene; avoiding touching the eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands; cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces throughout the workday; and undergoing temperature checks before shifts.
  • All diners must wear face masks or coverings while in a dining space. Masks should be worn during movement within the dining facility and can only be removed when sitting and dining.
  • The capacity of the primary dining hall, Lehr and Phillips Dining Hall, will be decreased to allow for physical distancing in seating configurations. Once at capacity new diners will only be allowed to enter after others have left.
  • Self-serve food options will no longer be available in the primary dining hall; dining services staff will prepare and serve all meals to students. Beverage dispensers will be cleaned regularly, and adaptations are being designed.
  • The meal exchange option will be extended to other venues on campus and a newly created take-out location will be established.  The main dining hall will serve kosher, vegetarian, and vegan options.

Take-out service is encouraged, as is the use of outdoor seating during peak dining service hours.
