Dining Services’ top priority is the safety of the Queens community. All members of our management team, as well as our chefs and culinary leads, have completed ServSafe COVID-19 safety training and Count On Me NC safety training. In addition, our hourly associates have undergone extensive training and will participate in ongoing trainings to provide the most up-to-date procedures.
Beginning in the Fall of 2021, we will return to normal operations, service and seating for vaccinated individuals. We will continue to offer the same great meal plans with no changes for vaccinated residents and commuter students, as well as faculty and staff. Unvaccinated individuals are expected to obtain meals on a "to-go" basis only.
Beginning in the Fall of 2021, our Coffee Shop and Einstein's Bagels will be open with normal service.
For events and gatherings that utilize catering services, please coordinate with the catering staff to ensure your event is as safe as possible. For events and gatherings that involve only vaccinated individuals, this may allow you the flexibility of buffet lines. For events and gatherings that include unvaccinated individuals, you should request that the catering staff serve all of the food/drink items and that masking (except when eating/drinking) and social distancing practices are in place.
For all visitors (non-faculty/staff or students) we ask that you obtain your meals on a “to-go” basis.
In the event of an outbreak on campus, we will adjust our service model as needed, following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, North Carolina, and the Mecklenburg County Health Department.
