With safety as our highest priority, we are adjusting our dining operations at all levels to exceed students’ safety standards and contribute to the overall health of the Loyola University community.  See below for a list of Dining FAQs.  You can also submit any additional questions to dine@luc.edu.

How will you ensure dining facilities are safe for diners?

We have enhanced our sanitation practices to protect our dining locations.  Each dining hall will be closed between meal periods so we may thoroughly clean.  There will be an emphasis on repeated cleaning of high-touch areas.  Dining surfaces will be sanitized on a regular basis.  Meals will be served carry out style while eliminating all self serve stations.  Additionally, we are incorporating social distancing while in the dining halls and are offering contactless meal swipes/payment.  Hand sanitizer will be available in all dining halls. 

How will you ensure that your employees are being safe?

We pledge to ensure employees come to work healthy and safe, leaving and returning in the same condition at the end and beginning of each shift.  Among many employee safety measures are: employee temperature monitoring upon arrival, mandatory handwashing every 20 minutes, proactively procured PPE (face masks, coverings and gloves) and social distancing.  Per CDC guidelines, employees will not be permitted to work if they have a temperature above 100.4 or Covid 19 symptoms.

What are you using to disinfect your locations?

Loyola Dining utilizes EcoLogic Solutions to clean and disinfect high touch surfaces, tables, counters and floors.  These products are electro-chemical activated and provide hospital grade disinfectant.  Solutions are made onsite at Loyola University and avoid excess plastic packaging and defer harmful chemicals from being poured down drains and entering into any of our Great Lakes and streams. 

Can I sit and eat with my friends in the dining hall?

There will be very limited seating in the dining halls with seating spaced 6 feet apart.  Students should plan to enjoy their meal carry out style.  

Where can I use my meal plan swipes?

Meal plan swipes can be used in Damen Dining Hall and DeNobili Dining Hall.  Your meal plan swipe grants you access to a variety of freshly prepared options served carry out style. 

I don’t have a meal plan.  Can I still eat on campus?

All dining locations will accept Rambler Bucks, Dining Dollars or credit card.  Cash will not be accepted at any dining location. 

Will there be late night dining at DeNobili?

There will be late night bites at DeNobili from 8pm – 10pm Tuesday – Thursday.  Students on the weekly 21 meal plan can pick up their late night bites without deducting a meal from their weekly amount.  Students on any other meal plan will need to use a meal swipe.  Students can also pay the door rate of $8.50 plus tax with Rambler Bucks, Dining Dollars or credit card. 

How will I know what’s being served in the dining halls?

Menus are posted daily for the dining halls at luc.campusdish.com.  We are adding additional monitors with the menu to help students make their decision while they are waiting to enter the servery.  We encourage students to use these resources to help them make their decision ahead of time.

Do you accommodate special diets or food allergies?

There will be daily vegan, vegetarian and food allergy friendly options during each meal period.  We encourage students to speak to a manager directly with any questions regarding options.

How do I give my feedback?

Students can provide their feedback by visiting yourdiningvoice.com and a manager will provide an answer within 48 hours.  Managers are available and easily identified by their uniform and name tag at all locations.  Students can also submit an email to dine@luc.edu.
