Who We Are

HDS Campus Dining leads the industry with superior quality food and exceptional dining experiences. We have 17 convenient campus locations, including all-you-care-to-eat dining centers, grab-n-go’s, convenience stores, coffee shops, bakery, and a late-night café.

We continue to expand our sustainability initiatives and reduce our carbon footprint in our daily operations. This includes efforts in resource recovery, conservation, and food sourcing.

We are also passionately committed to providing options and information to all of our guests with dietary restrictions and allergens, including vegan, vegetarian, kosher, and Halal choices, supported by a strong allergen awareness program called A⁹ Identified®.
