6/11: Residential Dining Update

Dear Students,

We are writing to share an important update to the Summer Residential Dining program. USC Hospitality is testing a new service model. To make the Summer dining experience even safer, quicker, and more convenient, we are bringing our partner Grubhub to Residential Dining! 


Starting Saturday, June 13, 2020, all guests are encouraged to pre-order meals using the Grubhub app or the Grubhub website. Please note: guests who are not able to use Grubhub can walk into the dining hall to place an order but may experience a wait time. 

If you currently use Grubhub for meals and beverages at other USC campus cafes, you’re already a pro! The ordering process is essentially the same. If you’ve never used Grubhub before, be sure to check out the instructions here.

Link your USCard to your Grubhub account to use your Summer Meal Plan, Dining Dollars, or Discretionary Dollars. ProTip: Sign up with your USC email for exclusive offers.


The hours of operation for the USC Village Dining Hall are also changing starting Saturday, June 13th.  

  • Lunch Pick-Up: 11:30 AM – 3:30 PM (online orders begin at 11:30 AM and stop at 3:00 PM)
  • Dinner Pick-Up: 3:30 PM – 7:30 PM (online orders begin at 3:30 PM and stop at 7:00 PM)

We will no longer be open for breakfast for the remainder of the summer, but you will receive a FREE continental breakfast bag with your dinner meal! Meals are available for take-out only, no on-site dining is allowed. 


Lunch and Dinner will include your choice of three (3) entrées (one will always be vegan) plus one accompanying vegetable and starch side, choice of salad, dressing, dessert, and soda plus a gelatin cup, and two water bottles.   

To access allergen, vegan, and vegetarian information for our menus, please visit our Residential Dining site.

No need to swipe at the cashier station! Just pick up your order at the tables near the front entrance of the USC Village Dining Hall at the time listed on your order.

We hope that you find this new system to be convenient for you! If you have any questions, about the new summer system, please email Lindsey Pine, USC Hospitality’s registered dietitian, at lpine@usc.edu. Tell us what you think and offer suggestions through our online feedback forum.

Please stay safe and Fight On!
