Department ofDining & Culinary Services

Dining & Culinary Services is proudly owned and operated by Pacific Lutheran University and our thoughtful, professional staff is committed to serving the PLU Community.

In addition to The Commons, our state of the art dining facility, we operate Old Main Market, Tahoma Market & Cafe, Kelley Cafe, Nook Espresso Cart, and University Catering.

We are dedicated to providing nutritionally sound meals, mentoring students, providing hospitality with integrity and leading our community in sustainable initiatives.

Through the links on the left, you can navigate the special services we offer:

Meals Away — the best way to redeem the value in your unlimited access all-you-care-to-eat portion of your meal plan. When you have commitments that may keep you from accessing that portion of your plan, just give us 24 hours notice and we will be happy to pack a Meal Away for you.

Sick Meal — when you're feeling too sick to leave your room and need a basic meal to get by. We charge you $5 and you can have a friend pick it up for you too.

Coffee Coupons — intended for departments wanting to give away free coffee drinks. We'll print them up for you with your account number and we can both rest assured that it's a legitimate coupon.

Weekly Email — sign up to get on the list, it comes to you every Monday and gives you a run-down on any special events and what we're serving in The Commons that week.
