Dining & Conference Services (DCS)
Calling all Salad Bowls!
We appreciate everyone's enthusiasm for the new salad bowls available for the Ramen Bar and Salad Bar, but where have they gone? We started out with 500 bowls and about 450 of them have disappeared from the Diner in the last month. We can't support the Ramen Bar or provide a sustainable alternative at the Salad Bar until we have them back. Please bring your bowls back to campus as soon as possible!
Puget Sound Dining Services is proudly owned and operated by the University of Puget Sound in collaboration with Columbia Hospitality. Food plays an important role in nourishing both students and campus life at Puget Sound. A vibrant dining experience is vital to create an environment where all members of the campus and surrounding community are eager to gather around the same table. Our thoughtful, professional staff is committed to serving the Puget Sound Community. We are dedicated to providing nutritionally sound meals, mentoring students, providing hospitality with integrity and leading our community in sustainable initiatives.
Whether you choose to recharge in The Diner, relax over a latte at Diversions, grab a slice in The Cellar, catch up between classes at the Oppenheimer Café, or gather for a meeting, conference or event we offer a dining option to fit your tastes.
Located in the student union building, the Diner is the primary culinary hub on campus. Here students and campus community members can enjoy a wide variety of foods from different cultures daily. We are dedicated to providing nutritionally sound meals, mentoring students, providing hospitality with integrity and leading our community in sustainable initiatives.
Student-Run Dining Services: The Cellar, Diversions, The OC
Along with the Diner, Puget Sound students manage two cafés and a pizza house/convenience store on campus. Diversions Café, located in the student union building, and the Oppenheimer Café, located in the Thompson Hall courtyard are the University's take on the classic espresso bar. Students can use their Dining Dollars in either café to purchase early morning coffee or a snack between classes. Similarly, located in the basement of the student union building is the Cellar, a pizzaria and convenience store open late for students to stop in for a study break later in the evening.
The University of Puget Sound Catering Services provide an outstanding menu for events of all shapes and sizes. From coffee services to elegant wedding receptions, on and off-campus, Catering Services maintains a high standard for sustainability and purchasing from local merchants.
The University of Puget Sound plans and coordinates a wide variety of conferences all year round. If you are a non-profit organization looking to coordinate a conference, meeting or event we can help you. We offer daytime as well as overnight accommodations for groups ranging from 25 - 3,500 people.
The DCS team is dedicated to providing our students and the campus community with healthy, sustainable dining options.
