The University of Colorado at Boulder has unveiled its state-of-the-art 900-seat market-style dining hall inside the school's new $84.4 million Center for Community building. It features featuring nine themed stations serving freshly prepared food—including sushi, Italian, Brazilian and Persian, along with a grab-and-go cafe, a retail bakery and a late-night food hub open til 2 am.
The school expects the dining complex to serve some 4,000 meals each day once full-time classes begin this fall, which is almost half of the total number of daily meals served last year at all dining outlets. This will allow campus dining services to shut down at least two other campus dining facilities and reduce production needs at others. The eatery is designed to be the anchor for the 183,000-sq.ft. Center for Community complex, which will also house a dozen student offices previously scattered around campus.
