Catering

The university is no longer able to offer in-house catering. We have put other service options in place to fulfill on-campus catering needs.

Carry-Away Service

Grab-and-go sandwiches, salads, coffee, and pastry for small gatherings are always available at all campus dining venues. A list of campus dining locations can be found below. To facilitate ease of payment, departments may request a dedicated newcard that will be funded with a specified FOAP. Instructions can be found at the newcard site.

Lang Café, located at 65 West 11th Street, can accommodate catered events for small groups. Available are additional to-go sandwiches, bottled beverages, breakfast pastries, and Box of Joe for hosts to pick up for their meetings. Please visit the café; one of the campus dining associates would be glad to assist with your to-go order.

General Campus Catering

The university has institutional relationships with several food and beverage/catering vendors. A complete list can be found below. These vendors already recognize the university’s tax-exempt status and may offer additional pricing or service considerations. Vendors that choose to do so will begin accepting the university’s newcard for payment, allowing for additional ease of payment. We are happy to pursue additional relationships if interest warrants.
