To Go & Sick Meals
To Go Meals/Box Meals
An alternative service is provided to those unable to partake of the regular dining facilities due to conflicting class schedules and recognized University athletics schedules. Call 410-543-6105 for additional information or print out and submit the form to reserve your meal.
(You will need Acrobat Reader to read/print this files).

Sick Meals
If you are unable to make it to the Commons due to illness or injury, you may arrange to receive a boxed meal from Dining Services through Student Health Services. Ill students should contact Student Health Services (410-543-6262) to receive a therapeutic diet recommendation. Student Health Services will then provide Dining Services with the information needed to prepare an appropriate meal. If Student Health Services is closed, specifically on weekends, your R.A. can call Dining Services at 410-548-5598 to arrange for a meal to be provided to you.

The sick student or a roommate/friend may pick up the sick meal at the cashier's station in the Commons. Please make sure you or your friend bring your Gull Card (ID) when picking up the meal.

Etiquette Dinners
Have you ever wondered which fork you are supposed to use first? What should you do with your napkin if you get called away from the table? Or which knife you should use? Kelli Delgado, Catering Manager, holds two etiquette dinners each semester to teach the art of fine dining. These classes are free to seniors who have a meal plan. For dates and more information, please call 410-543-6105.
