As the Howard Gittis Student Center remains under renovation, new dining options through Aramark and meal plan prices for the 2017-2018 school year have been revealed.
In March, it was announced that multiple popular food vendors such as Chick-fil-A, BurgerFi, and Saladworks would be implemented into the Valaida S. Walker Food Court located in the Student Center. A new service called The Break will also be available, where students can order from the Food Court via an iPad and have it delivered.
Outside of the Student Center, there are more new dining options.
Located in Tyler School of Art, The Art of Bread features made-to-order sandwiches, salads, pastries, desserts from Stella’s Bakery & Creamery, and coffee from La Colombe: a local Philadelphia coffee brand. La Colombe coffee can also be found at Diamond General Express locations in James Beasley School of Law and Annenberg Hall, The Nook in Tuttleman Learning Center, and Granium in the Science Education and Research Center, all of which feature grab-n-go style foods and drinks.
Morgan Hall Food Court will still feature popular Philadelphia cheesesteak joint Tony Luke’s. The only new vendors currently listed are The Night Owl Diner and Stella’s Bakery and Creamery, where the University’s Baker will have his own personal bake shop in addition to Little Baby’s Ice Cream.
Updated meal plan pricing for the new school year has also been made available.
Although prices have increased, there are several new options available all together. What was previously called J&H Unlimited has been changed to just Unlimited, meaning unlimited access to both the Louis J. Esposito Dining Center in J&H and the Morgan Hall Dining Center. Premium 15 Meal Passes, Premium 10 Meal Passes, and Premium 5 Meal Passes are the other new plans.
New students living on campus are required to have at least 10 meals per week. Last year’s Regular 10 Meal Plan cost $1,506.00 while the new 2017-2018 pricing brings it to $1,529.00. Another popular option, Premium 10, rose from $1,760.00 to $1,787.00. Across the board, prices have risen approximately 1%.
