Campus Wide Options for Food and Beverages

We Think Sustainably!
Ceramic plates are available free for in-house dining.
Purchase a REUSABLE GREEN CONTAINER that is washable and reuseable and save on the to-go container cost. We can wash your old ones for you and replace a new one with meal purchase. To-go utensils are also made of sustainable wood and no longer providing customers with plastic utensils or straws.

Update: As of August 2021, the BC Snack Shop, JSB Cafe and the Gourmet Dining Room are not currently open. Schedule announcements will be made accordingly.
