As we start the semester with a large group of students on campus, our Dining & Culinary Services team is working hard to make the experience as quick and convenient for residents as possible. Our September dining service updates offer tips on avoiding lines, information about seating, some upcoming key dates, and a note about food supply changes.
Housing COVID-19 Updates
Now that the semester is underway, we wanted to share a few important updates with you related to COVID-19 guidelines. We continue to work closely with campus, local, and state health officials to help keep our community healthy. Take a moment to review how you can keep yourself and our community healthy, and what to do if you experience symptoms or if you or a roommate/close contact has tested positive.
Need to Change Your Dining Plan?
Have you found your dining plan isn't quite the right fit for you? If so, you can adjust your dining plan in your My UW Housing portal from September 17–October 3. New dining plan selections will take effect on October 9. Bills or credits for changes will be issued October 18. We will not have any other opportunities to change your dining plan later in the academic year after that period.
