The Schatz Dining Room, which has been closed for renovation through the summer, is now in the final stages of the space transformation and will be re-opening to the campus community soon.

The hope was to open Schatz at the beginning of the academic year, but unexpected delays in permitting and construction have pushed the project a few weeks later.  At present, the anticipated opening for Schatz is Wednesday, September 18

The renovated Schatz Dining Room will offer a fast-casual restaurant experience, open exclusively to faculty, staff and graduate students during lunch, Monday – Friday. It will provide additional and flexible seating in a modern and updated space. The menu will feature upscale lunch entrées, a chef action station, made-to-order salads, soups and desserts. Schatz is open to all members of the university community for breakfast, dinner and brunch on the weekends.


Join us for the Schatz Dining Room Grand Opening Celebration on Friday, October 4, 4 PM – 6 PM. Experience the new built-in Teaching Kitchen and enjoy free samples from the menu.
