  • Our retail locations (Levering, CSM) will be accessible to the entire campus community while our residential locations (FFC and Nolan’s) will be restricted to only students on meal plans.
  • Additional safety measures include additional shielding at all service points, elimination of self-service areas, contactless payment points and weekly testing for all dining staff.
