fHow to Dine This Spring

Author: Molly Moran



Due to the current challenging labor market, we have fewer Campus Dining staff than necessary to provide evening and late night dining options. We continue to aggressively recruit new team members, but have evaluated our current capacity and made necessary adjustments to our fall hours of operations. Please know that none of these adjustments come lightly and as soon as we are able to expand hours, we will. 

Dining Halls

  • Dining halls will open with pre-COVID service styles and communal dining, including popular items such as stir fry, salad bars, and plant-based and gluten-free options.
  • Disposable gloves will be available at self-serve stations. We will monitor COVID levels and adjust self-service options only if necessary, and in collaboration with county health officials.  
  • Only students, faculty, and staff will be permitted in the dining halls. 
Monday - Thursday Friday Saturday - Sunday
Breakfast 7:00 am – 11:00 am Breakfast 7:00 am – 11:00 am

  • Food orders from open retail outlets may be placed through the Grubhub mobile app or kiosks in Duncan Student Center, LaFortune Student Center, the Hesburgh Library or the Hesburgh Center for International Studies. 
    • Notre Dame has removed fees on Grubhub. You can use mobile ordering for pickup completely free, on-campus, with no limits. 
  • The Huddle Mart does not utilize Grubhub and ordering will be consistent with past service.
  • Please note that Grubhub does not integrate with Starbucks or Subway loyalty programs. Thank you for your understanding.
  • Wait times for retail outlets are available via the Grubhub app.
