Dining at PLU
PLU has one main cafeteria, called the Commons, located in the University Center. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served in this area, but there are also other places on campus to grab a quick bite or some coffee. There is a coffee stand with some snacks in Hauge Administration building (Admin), Morken building and Columbia Center on lower campus.
