With More Choices, Everybody Wins

The design philosophy of the renovated dining hall blends older times with something more modern. The final product is something that everyone can enjoy.

For example, collecting several restaurant-like stations is reminiscent of a classic mall food court. However, such food courts facilities were often characterized by greasy, unhealthy foods.

This dining hall, though, has food prepared by in-house chefs using the freshest ingredients. Students can order pizza, coffee, pastries, burgers, and more. The stations also provide vegetarian and vegan-friendly options and food for those with extreme allergies.

To top things off, the local university provides QR codes at each table. Students can scan these codes and offer feedback about the food. Over time, the dining hall staff will make changes to the food offered based on student feedback!
