We understand food is a very important part of a student's lifestyle. Dining Services strives to deliver a variety of options to satisfy all appetites. We have eight different dining locations on campus, with a diverse, quality selection of items at reasonable costs. We also know healthy eating is an important aspect and we strive to provide healthy options at all locations - whether it's for students, faculty, staff, and/or guests.
We are much more than what most of our visitors see on a daily basis. On top of the multiple dining locations on campus, Dining Services:
- Has a professional catering team that serves meetings, weddings, banquets and private parties, both on and off campus
- Provides meals for the Children’s Center on campus
- Distributes food to the Grant County Nutrition for the Elderly, which has six different sites in the county
- Supports efforts of the student-run food pantry on campus, Pioneer Provisions
- Hydroponics lab on campus changes how close our locally-grown lettuce and spinach is for all dining locations
We are a self-operated food service creating community and relationships through staff who are passionate about providing the best experience in campus dining. Whether it’s friends meeting for a meal, a comfort food that takes you back home, or being part of our food service team – Dining Services is here to make the campus dining experience one to fully enjoy.
Meal Access Office
The Meal Access Office, located in suite 1313 in the Markee Pioneer Student Center, is the main office for UW-Platteville Dining Services. Note that Catering, Campus Card Office, the Pioneer Crossing, the Pioneer Haus, and the Pioneer Perk are also found in the Student Center. Dining Services offers a wide variety of delicious and nutritional foods at several locations throughout campus.
Freshmen and sophomores (generally students with less than 60 credits earned) that are living in the residence halls are required to be on a meal plan. Students living off-campus may choose to participate in our program. We offer nine (9) meal plan choices to accommodate 19 meal periods each week. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are offered Monday through Friday, while brunch and dinner are served on Saturday and Sunday. Meal service is available during the academic year, excluding holidays and semester breaks. A student's Campus Card is used to retrieve the meal plan account at all Dining Services locations.
