Dining & Hospitality
At UCCS, we believe dining is crucial in our goal of serving you to better your health and wellness. With a variety of options across campus, we’re ready to serve you wholesome food, much of which is organic and produced locally. With the Office of Sustainability, we work hard to reduce waste and ensure your food is prepared with your health and safety at the top of mind. Across campus, you’ll find more than six eateries with delectable options in styles including all-you-care-to-eat, restaurant-style, grab-and-go and more.
