Dining at Commons

Commons offers a wide range of meal plan options to meet student needs, and also accepts payment in Dining Dollars, Declining Balance, and credit cards.

Meals are all-you-can-eat when dining in the facility and include hot entrees, vegetarian and vegan options, 
an extensive salad bar, desserts, and beverages.

If your schedule does not permit you time to Dine-In, meals are also available Fresh To Go using our complimentary Green Boxes. In an effort to reduce costs while remaining sustainable, please drop off your Green Box at one of our 3 drop-off locations (1 upstairs of Vail Commons, 1 downstairs Vail Commons, and 1 located inside Union- near the Post Office).
