Located in the heart of campus, Shocker Hall provides students an enhanced living-learning community, healthy meals, and convenient hours. The 400-seat AYCE dining facility was designed to accommodate daytime demands while also being functional for late night hours, without duplicating the space, equipment, or labor.

 

The contemporary design features 15-foot glass garage doors, which allows operators to close off the rest of the facility, while the late-night option remains open. Eleven unique food service platforms, a late-night micro restaurant, and a retail coffee house make up the dining options available to students seven days a week.
