UK Dining Extends Hours for the Remainder of the Summer

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 5, 2015) — August is here and much of the campus community will soon be returning to campus. At that time, the University of Kentucky will unveil its newest dining and academic support facility, "The 90," which will house the Fresh Food Company — a 1,000 seat residential dining area  as well as La Madeleine®, Taco Bell Express®, Aqua Sushi®, Ovid's and the Wildcat Pantry. On the second floor of The 90, a new Living and Learning Support zone will provide six classrooms, LLP offices, the Dining Center and the Food Connection.

Until the fall semester gets underway, members of the UK community — students, faculty, staff, visitors, fans and patients — who will be on campus for the next few weeks before the majority of students return, will have extended dining hours at current dining options. To view hours of operation for all of the UK Dining locations for the remainder of the summer, click here.

Along with The 90, the campus community can enjoy the dining locations that joined campus last fall, including K-Lair in Haggin Hall, Common Grounds® in Champions Court I, Einstein Bros. Bagels® in the Chemistry-Physics Building, Rising Roll® in the Ralph G. Anderson Building and Subway® Café in M.I. King Library.

Bowman's Den — located near the Singletary Center  also opened this summer. This facility offers many dining options including Greens To Go®, Panda Express®, Subway®, Chik-Fil-A® and Starbucks®.

Nearly $70 million has been invested in renovating, building and improving UK Dining facilities, transforming this vital service for the UK community.
