The Dining Room service is available for breakfast, dinner, and supper from Monday to Sunday. It is a self-serve system. There is a pigeonhole hutch for placing each resident's napkin, which is laundered twice a week: Mondays and Thursdays. Please do not store food in the pigeonholes for reasons of cleanliness and hygiene.
Residents also have at their disposal a microwave oven for those who wish to heat their meal and several toasters for use at breakfast. This University College accepts residents with special diets, but the Director's Office must be informed at the start of the academic year.
Meal times are:
Breakfast: From 7:00 am to 9:15 am from Monday to Friday and from 8:30 am to 10:00 am Saturdays, Sun-days, and holidays.
Lunch: From 12:45 pm to 4:00 pm from Monday to Friday and from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.
Dinner: From 8:30 pm to 10:00 pm from Monday to Friday and on Sundays, and from 8:30 pm to 9:45 pm Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.
Disaners and suppers are considered to be group activities and attendance is therefore recommended.
You are prohibited, due to sanitary and hygiene issues, from taking trays, cutlery, napkins, or dinnerware to your rooms.
Respect the portions allotted to each person so that there is enough food for all. If you would like seconds, please ask the Kitchen Service.
Respect the dining hall hours. If your class hours so demand it, sign up for a lunch bag on the list at Reception. They will be handed out to those who signed up the day before at Reception by 9:00 pm. The lunch bags can be picked up until 2:00 pm; those not delivered by then will be returned to the kitchen. The lunch bag service is offered by the College as an alternative to meals in the dining hall. If you use both services at the same time, you must supply a meal ticket to Reception and will not be able to use the lunch bag option for the rest of the academic year.
In addition, students at the Leioa Campus and at the Engineering School can request meal tickets at a reduced price from the University College's Administration.
If you cannot attend supper due to a duly justified significant cause (for instance, training in an intramural sport), you can request supper to be stored for you in a plastic container deliverable in the Dining Hall at lunch time, before 3:00 pm, with your name and room number written on the outside in marker.
