Our Mission: To Nourish and Engage

Welcome to UCCS Dining and Hospitality Services

Dining Services at UCCS is committed to nourishing you through thoughtful and sustainable food in every meal. We fuel the University of Colorado Colorado Springs campus with whole, minimally proceed foods, fresh and local ingredients, utilizing healthier ingredients and transparent choices. We stand committed to making well-thought-out, strategic choices in our purchasing and operational decision-making with the goal of not compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

We integrate with critical UCCS departments, such as the UCCS Farm, which helps fuel our healthy options through sustainable farming efforts. The Farm helps provide organic vegetables that we use in many meals. We also partner with the Gallogly Recreation and Wellness Center on an integrated model linking physical health, mental health, nutrition and exercise.

Sustainable Farming Right On Campus

UCCS has its very own farmhouse focused on providing nutritious ingredients to the campus community and beyond. Their mission is not just to fuel the campus community through food, but also through education. Explore our partnership and the UCCS Farm by visiting their website.
Nutrition to Fuel You
Partnering with the Gallogly Recreation and Wellness Center
We partner with the UCCS Wellness Center to help provide nutrition education, as we believe nutrition is linked to both physical and mental wellness.
