What are the summer dining options and hours?

Starting Monday, May 11, the Orleans Room is offering boxed meal pickup during the once-daily time:

  • Monday–Sunday: 11:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.

Guests may pick up hot lunch, boxed dinner, and continental breakfast items during this designated pickup time.

Will food allergy accommodations be met?

Yes. Sodexo will have boxed meals available for pick up ONLY during normal hours of operation noted above to address most of the food-allergy reactions: milk, eggs, wheat, soy, shellfish, peanuts, and tree nuts. 

What safety measures will you take for fall dining services?

In partnership with our food provider, Sodexo, Loyola will enact proven precautions and safety practices, combined with transparent and ongoing communication, to offer healthy, safe, and delicious dining options on campus this fall. The campus dining team is taking every precaution to deliver safe, high-quality food in a carefully controlled environment, including requiring personal protective equipment, frequent hand washing, and regular temperature checks for our staff. We will also eliminate self-service options, expand options for carryout orders, and use touchless technology for transactions. We will follow enhanced cleaning protocols for high-touch areas and limit capacity according to city and state guidelines.

Will retail food options be available?

All retail food venues in the Danna Student Center and at the BAC, including Starbucks, are closed through August 1. We will reopen options for the Fall 2020 semester with enhanced cleaning protocols, social distancing requirements, and capacity limits according to city and state guidelines. 

Is dining open to the general public?

Currently, the Orleans Room boxed meal pick up will only be available for students, faculty, and staff.

Will cross campus dining be suspended?

Cross campus spending with Tulane is suspended for the remainder of the semester or until further notice.

Will catering events be canceled?

All on campus catering events are canceled for the remainder of the semester or until further notice.
