Carnegie Mellon Catering Services
Whether you are hosting a business dinner, a student group meeting, or planning an elegant gala, our catering staff is committed to providing you with an exceptional culinary experience right here on campus. Our catering staff — as well as our partners in Conferences and Events — are here to help you make your event planning easier.
CulinArt is the preferred and primary catering vendor on campus. All of CulinArt's resources and staff are on campus and readily available, making last minute additions or change requests easy to accommodate. CulinArt's creative culinary department can customize any menu or event according to your specifications and design a menu for any type of cuisine or theme. This Catering Guide [pdf] is a great starting point as it provides many standard menu options. The Student Catering Guide [pdf] is a great resource for student organizations. Catering Xpress is a new, fresh, and convenient drop-off only service available Monday through Friday, 7am - 5pm, for 45 guests or fewer. While the guides provide many great menu ideas, you can always work with CulinArt to create a customized catering menu that fits within your budget.
A benefit to catering your event or meeting through Dining Services is that every dollar spent directly supports the growth and improvement of the overall dining program. Dining Services hopes that you will consider on-campus catering before placing an order with an outside caterer. Also note that CulinArt will price match when possible.
For smaller or more casual special events or meetings, you could also consider catering via any of dining's on campus vendors.
