Dining Services Statement Regarding COVID-19:


The COVID-19 situation is evolving rapidly, and new decisions are being made at the university, local, county, state, and national level on a daily basis. Dining Services has a flexible plan that will also evolve and adapt to the situation as it develops, to ensure we are providing essential services to the remaining students on our campus.

At this point, due to the current situation, regular Spring quarter hours for dining locations are yet to be finalized and will be determined at a later time. In addition, due to the constant evolution of the current situation, all hours are subject to change without notice.

In an effort to comply with the Governor’s directives and to support the actions to help keep the campus community safe, dining locations will operate as take-out operations only (pending further updates from the Governor’s office). Seating will not be available on-location, and social distancing practices will be enforced in dining areas and markets across campus. Self-serve areas have been converted to service-only areas, and condiments and utensils are available behind the counter upon request.

In addition, per the Kittitas Public Health department order, the SURC will be open to students, faculty, and staff with a valid CWU ID only. All must show their ID at the West patio entrance of the building. SURC dining locations remain open, including Central Marketplace and Cat Trax West/Cats C-Store (see spring break hours for updated hours, subject to change without notice).


Meal Plan Information (Current Residents/Remaining on CWU Campus)

If you currently have a meal plan for Spring 2020, and are currently and continuing to reside in CWU residential space for Spring quarter, no changes will be made to your meal plan unless you request a change. Your Spring meal plan will go into effect on Monday, March 23, 2020. Students who wish to make modifications to their meal plan may do so until Monday, April 13, 2020 through their MyHousing account.


Meal Plan Information (No Longer Residing on CWU Campus)

With the cancellation of your Housing contract, your Spring meal plan will also be automatically canceled. More information can also be found on the Housing and Residence Life website. Students who cancel their Spring meal plan will not be penalized, and charges for early termination will be waived.


Remaining Winter Quarter Dining Dollars (For Students No Longer Residing on CWU Campus)

A final decision about students with remaining Winter quarter dining dollars balances has yet to be made. Either extending the availability of funds or transferring funds to a more flexible method of use is being considered. Please watch for updates via our website notifications, in addition to direct communication to all those impacted.

A decision may be somewhat delayed as we work through more immediate challenges to help ensure the health and safety of our remaining residents, but we will have an answer in time for you to make informed decisions about your on-campus housing future. As information becomes available, we’ll share with all who are impacted.


We know that these are challenging times. If you have any questions, please contact CWU Dining Services at or 509-963-1591.
