Rollins Dining Marketplace Update

If you are a returning student, you may have noticed that the College has converted the Marketplace in the Cornell Campus Center from a la carte dining (separate food items) to price fixe all access dining with all the same great food options as before. During this initial week, we have heard feedback from students about how this new system works. We want you to know that we hear you, and we have immediately addressed some issues. Feedback we have heard is that because the dining area in the Campus Center is now dedicated to those who have purchased an all access meal, some are concerned there is no place to dine, meet, and study with friends.

We understand this will be adjustment as students find their new community spaces. Please keep in mind that Dave’s Boathouse is available to students for this purpose, as are other dining venues on campus. Also, we are offering an environmentally friendly to-go program called OZZI, utilized at many colleges across the country. We have included details about how that works in the attached FAQ document. Similarly, we’ve had questions about where to find single food items. Those can be found at all other dining locations on campus. Lastly, we have extended the lunch hours for the interim, to ensure that everyone has enough time to eat during the lunch hour.

All of the changes Rollins Dining Service has introduced were motivated by direct student requests, feedback, and concerns. We continue to be open to hearing your suggestions and concerns and we ask that you give this new model a try for a few weeks while we work out some operational issues. We plan to have an open forum to discuss it more broadly in the coming weeks.
