National Brands Available!

We've brought three brands students voted most appealing in a recent survey to create a well-rounded dining experience. The Spellmann Center Dining Hall offers students the choices of Qdoba and Chick-fil-a, along with our standard options. Caribou Coffee products are available in the new Lion's Pride Market convenience store also located in the Spellmann Center! Introducing Starbucks at our brand-new Library and Academic Resources Center!

Dining Options

We asked what you wanted from campus dining. Now you have it!

Dining Dollars

Perfect for the new convenience store, Dining Dollars are accepted at all dining locations throughout the campus. Similar to Lion Dollars, Dining Dollars can be managed through the Student Portal. A great benefit of Dining Dollars is you pay no sales tax on purchases, so it’s like a built-in discount on every purchase! You can use Dining Dollars for lot of things, including:

  • add dessert to a meal combo at Chick-fil-A in Spellmann Center Dining Hall
  • get some toothpaste at Lion's Pride Market at 10 p.m. when you realize you’re out
  • grab Caribou Coffee at Lion's Pride Market before that 8 a.m. class 
  • pay for a guest to join you at Evans for a lunch buffet while you use a meal from your block meal plan
