University of Minnesota - Twin Cities Dining Services

Fall 2021 Service Update:

M Dining, like many industries, is facing significant staffing shortages as we start the fall semester, which means that some retail locations will not open with the start of the academic year. We ask for your understanding and patience as we continue our efforts to hire as many students and employees as needed. Updated retail hours will be communicated on social media and on our website.
