Dining At SU

The Commons is a beautiful facility with high, vaulted ceilings and large windows. The 124,000-square-foot building is a dining facility, conference center and special event venue all rolled into one. Its ground floor houses the campus bookstore and post office. The main level features dining rooms and the two serving areas, the Marketplace and the Bistro. A variety of rooms are available from spacious ballrooms to more intimate settings.

The Commons Marketplace food court features 11 different food kiosks serving everything from Mexican food, pasta and fresh dough pizza to homestyle cooking, made-to-order stir-fry and deli sandwiches.

Next door to the Marketplace is the Bistro, serving buffet-style meals. The Bistro dining room which seats 250 people is designed for casual elegance and is ideal for special events.

The 350-seat Dorchester Room, large and airy with its ceiling 2 1/2 stories up, has palladium windows and dormers to bring the outdoors inside.
