Dining Updates

Welcome to Award Winning Dining

Dear Students:

Welcome back, we hope you all had a great winter break. As students move-in, and the campus reopens, I want to take the time to share with you our plans for the spring semester. 
This spring, UMass Dining will continue to serve our customers the healthy, sustainable and delicious meals you have come to expect. We have a number of dining specials planned: celebrating global culture, New England food system, plant forward menu choices and special events.  Our culinary team worked tirelessly over the break to improve the menus and expand our offerings.  We are pleased to offer students dine-in service in all of our DCs, Blue Wall and select Retail Cafes. In addition, we have expanded our retail offerings and extended Grab N’ Go hours. 
Our goal is to provide an enjoyable dining experience while keeping student health and safety a top priority. I am excited to share that we expanded student access to all locations both residential DCs and Retail Cafes. In addition to a robust in-person dining program, UMass students will see several additions this spring: 

  • Expanded Grab N’ Go hours until 9pm 
  • Additional access to Retail Dining: students with Residential dining plans (Unlimited 500, Unlimited 250, Unlimited DC and DC Basic) will receive 30 extra meal exchange swipes (valid 1/24 to 2/13) at no additional cost. 
  • Special “pop-up” DC meals in the Campus Center Auditorium (1st floor Campus Center). The special meal will run Monday to Friday and feature authentic globally inspired cuisine. 
  • Week one (1/25-1/28) will feature Indian menu items
  • Week two (1/31-2/4) will honor Lunar New Year 
  • Week three (2/7-2/11) will celebrate Black History Month  
  • Expanded dinner offerings in the Blue Wall 
  • Extended dinner hours at Worcester DC until 10pm 

UMass Dining will routinely provide updated information on our website, www.umassdining.com and social media channels. We hope you have a great spring semester and look forward to serving you. 
Thank you and Go UMass!
