A Few Guidelines

To help you enjoy your meal plan and for us to run a smooth and efficient operation, we ask that you please follow these guidelines when using the University dining facilities:

  1. Gull (Meal) Card Procedures
    All patrons must present their Gull Card in order to utilize a meal plan when eating in the Commons during regular business hours. If the student does not have his/her Gull Card (forgotten or misplaced) then he/she will not be admitted to the Commons. The Gull Card office, located on the basement level of the Commons, is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. for all your Gull Card replacement needs ($25 fee). During times when the Gull Card Office is not open (evenings and weekends), students with a meal plan will be issued a temporary meal pass by the manager on duty in the Commons. Temporary passes can be used only in the Commons and will only be valid until the Gull Card Office reopens (one night for evenings and until Monday morning on weekends). A student will only be issued a temporary meal pass once per semester.

    The Gull Card, containing your meal plan information, remains the property of Salisbury University and is only for personal use of the person to whom it is issued. Cards and meal plans may not be shared (non-transferable). Students found to be using a card not issued to them will be subject to reprimand and/or disciplinary action under the University Code of Conduct, Section 12 B.

  2. Cancellation / Disciplinary Action
    A student may have his or her meal plan contract canceled or be subject to disciplinary action by the University for the following reasons:

    Using abusive and insulting language, vandalism and infringements upon the rights of others in any dining facility.
    Removing food or equipment from dining areas.
    Selling or allowing others to use your meal plan.
    Being intoxicated or attempting to bring alcohol or drugs into any UDS location--the Commons, Gull's Nest, Cool Beans Cyber Cafe and any satellite location.
    Displaying unacceptable conduct, disruptive behavior or personal endangerment of any kind (for example: throwing objects or dining utensils).
    Abusing dining staff or facilities.
    Misusing, defacing, falsifying or tampering with University property (SU Gull Card)

  3. Refunds
    Students whose meal plans are terminated for disciplinary reasons are not eligible for a refund.

  4. Kitchen Areas
    Only employees on duty are allowed in the kitchen, behind the serving lines or in storage areas.

  5. Signs, Posters and Table Tents
    Table tents can be delivered to Room 207 in The Commons.

    Table Tents:
    Tents
    need to be printed on Card Stock paper & cut to correct size.
    Quantity & Size Needed--
    55 copies, 3 7/8" (W) x 5 7/8" (H).
    Preference given to those who can assist with inserting tents.  
    Tents are displayed on a first-come, first-serve basis.

  6. Public Health Laws and Wicomico County Health Department
    Requirements include wearing shoes and shirts at all times where food is served and eaten.

    All food prepared for student and/or faculty gatherings shall be done under the auspices of Salisbury University Dining Services to ensure that storage, preparation and service are in compliance with HACCP and Health Department guidelines.
