Take Meals To Go

to-go-banner

Your safety is, and always has been, a top priority. Our main objective is to Protect the Pack. To ensure we have done the necessary due diligence to keep you safe, we have implemented new protocol. This includes placing emphasis on speed of service, limiting interaction between customer and cashier, and packaging all meals to take to go. There is no seating available in Neptune or New Hall’s dining rooms, and reusable drink containers are not permitted.

Residential Students

You received a care package upon move-in. This package included two key tags that are to be used to exchange for two green, reusable containers. You can choose to fill one or both containers during your visit.

Off-Campus Student meal plan holders

Currently, you will be given disposable containers.

If you had an off-campus meal plan prior to September 15, 2020, instructions will be emailed to you on how to get a care package that includes the two key tags that can be exchanged for the green, reusable container.

If you purchase an off-campus meal plan after September 15, 2020, please contact us directly through email stating you would like to use the green, reusable container. We will work out a way to get the key tags to you. Please send your email to dining@niu.edu from your NIU email address to verify the request.

Faculty/Staff meal plan holders

Currently, you will be given disposable containers.

If you have an active Faculty/Staff Meal Plan and wish to use the green, reusable container, we ask that you contact us directly through email with your request. We will work out a way to get the key tags to you. Please send your email to dining@niu.edu from your NIU email address to verify the request.

How it Works

  • Swipe your OneCard at the checker station at Neptune or New Hall.
  • Select the food station(s) from which you would like to receive food.
  • Drop one or both key tags in the designated key tag container(s).
  • Tell the dining staff which food items you want to fill your container.
  • Take your food to go and enjoy!
  • Bring back either the key tag(s) or reusable container(s) next visit for a clean reusable container(s). Failure to do so will result in the use of disposable containers.
