Carillon Place Dining

Continue Walking Tour | Continue Residence Hall Tour

As the University population expanded, student dining halls became dated and worn out. Demands of students for healthier menu choices and an evolving service attitude on the part of those providing for their needs combined with a desire for ecologically sustainable buildings were a strong influence on the development of Carillon Place Dining Center. The replacement of Rodgers Hall with Centennial Hall and the addition of Falcon Heights as student residences combined to make 2011 the perfect time to replace Commons with a new facility, more in keeping with current needs.

A focus of its construction and operation has been sustainability. More information on these sustainability features can be found online.

Listed below are highlights in the history of the building:

  • 2011, Commons demolished, to be replaced by a new dining facility.
  • Fall 2011, Carillon Place Dining opens
