To-go Program

The To-go Program is available to you if you’re a student or staff member with a block plan. You can use one of your designated meal swipes to visit one of the all-you-care-to-eat dining centers; fill an eco-friendly, reusable container with food; and take it with you if you are unable to stay and enjoy it in the dining hall.

How It Works

  1. Visit the checker station at Neptune or Patterson Dining.
  2. Notify the checker you would like to take your food to go.
  3. Swipe your OneCard to pay for your meal; other payment options accepted.
  4. You will be handed a clean reusable container to take to the food station(s) of your choice.
  5. Hand the container to the dining staff and tell them which food items you want to fill your container.
  6. Take your food to go and enjoy!

Bring the container back on your next visit to receive a clean reusable container. Failure to do so will result in having to dine in or purchase a replacement container.

You are given the option to take a to-go key tag if you prefer to dine in when returning the container. The next time you wish to take your food to go, exchange the key tag for the reusable container.

How to Opt In

Students and faculty/staff with a block plan: Your meal plan includes a container at the beginning of the semester. To opt in, let the Neptune or Patterson Dining checker know you would like a reusable to-go container. The checker will be able to confirm if it is the first time you have used the program.

  • For those not on a block plan, the cost to opt in to the program is $8.
  • The initial cost can be paid with Dining Dollars, Huskie Bucks or credit/debit card.
  • You will not be penalized for normal wear and tear on the containers. As returned, damaged containers will be removed from circulation.
  • Intentional destruction or loss of containers will result in another $8 fee. A container not returned before requesting a new one is considered lost.
