The Commons Logo

The Commons is the main dining facility on the PLU campus featuring five unique stations. Our skilled culinary team has developed an exciting array of menu selections that combine the best of local and global ingredients. The result is an a la carte menu that features a wide selection of freshly prepared items.

Poke • Deli

This station is the same for both lunch and dinner.

Poke Bowls are always popular — you may even choose tofu instead of ahi tuna.

Custom deli sandwiches are available here too, choose your bread, condiments and toppings — even get it toasted if you want!!

And finally Cheese Quesadillas are available here as well

Sweet & Savory

Since we can’t have a serve yourself salad bar, we’ve totally reimagined the area in the middle of The Commons.

This station will be open all day — yep, even between regular meal times!

Breakfast will include house made oatmeal, açaí bowls, toast (bagels or bread), fruit & yogurt, juice and smoothies.

Lunch and dinner will have all of that (except oatmeal) and add on: Pho, big salads, rice/quinoa bowls, milkshakes AND Mix Ups (think layered blizzards)!
