Campus Dining & Catering

Tables, chairs, and a staircase in a North Campus dining area

On-campus Dining

Food Service locations and operating hours have changed as we implement safeguards and limit the number of people on campus. Please note campus-specific changes below.

We operate multiple food service locations and offer a full-service catering program that is available campus wide. Cafes use a cashless point-of-sale. Gift cards may be bought with cash at the student stores for those who do not use debit or credit cards.

Refunds

817-640-1791, then 1 for Customer Service

Debit/Credit Card Transactions

If a debit/credit card transaction fails to deliver product, the machines have drop sensors that should recognize product failed to deliver. It will take 48 hours, but the authorized charge should be credited back to your account.

Cash Transactions

If a cash transaction fails to deliver product or correct change, you can get a refund through the mail if you’d like to provide a mailing address. Alternatively if you are an employee on site, Mcliff can have our tech refund money on arrival, as they like to schedule a service call anytime a machine malfunctions.
