CWU Dining Services has made adjustments to the spaces and offerings. Our top priority will continue to be your well-being. These changes are in support of the efforts of the university, and to follow the local, state, and national directives. Modifications are subject to change without notice.

The following changes are in place at Northside Commons:

  • Seating

    To mitigate visitors eating in close proximity, all seating has been removed from Northside Commons. This location operates as a take-out only space for both Panda Express and 1891 Café and Market.

  • Menu

    Panda Express has a reduced menu to speed up service and reduce waiting time. See menu at location for offerings.

  • Physical Distancing and Face Coverings

    All visitors are expected to follow all university directives when visiting our dining facilities. This includes wearing a face covering when traveling through dining facilities and at all times in dining spaces. We are also relying on our Wildcats to help us by supporting the physical distancing and enhanced efforts in place.

  • New! Mobile Ordering

    Mobile ordering is available at Panda Express beginning Winter 2021. Visit the Mobile Ordering page for more information on how to mobile order.

We are working hard to ensure that we continue to provide excellence in service in this environment. Please contact with any questions.
