Dining Hall Services (Gaffney Site)

Limestone University on-campus dining is managed by Sodexo. All students living in University Housing are required to participate in the food service meal plan. The 19-meals is required for all residence hall residents and the 12-meals is required for all apartment and/or houses’ residents. The board plan begins  the day the residence halls open. The board plan is not in effect during official University vacation periods. The student ID card (LCard) must be presented prior to each meal. Presentation of the LCard is necessary because it serves two purposes: 1) it provides statistical information necessary for dining services to determine future needs; 2) it prevents unauthorized use of your meal plan if your LCard is lost or stolen. Anyone not on a meal plan must pay before entering the dining hall. Meal plans may also be purchased by commuters, as well as University faculty and staff from Sodexo. The 19-meals and 12-meals are available to be purchased through the Business Office. And, daily meals may be purchased with the LCard, credit card or cash at the Stephenson Dining Hall or Dixie Deli.

The food service manager is in charge of all dining functions and is the facility coordinator for the Stephenson Dining Hall. As such, the manager is authorized to make decisions concerning the use of cafeteria equipment, crowd control, serving procedures, meal selections, etc. The management is always open to suggestions from students and others for improvements in the service. Students are encouraged and invited to discuss any matter relating to the dining room with the Director of Food Services or with the Office of Student Life. Students and other campus groups may desire to use one of the private dining rooms for meetings, dinners, and other events. The use of these facilities should be scheduled through the Director of Food Services well in advance. From time to time during the course of the year, the dining room features special dining events, exam treats, and other surprise events. In addition, the Director of Food Services is available for catering special events and parties, and for making birthday cakes, etc. If a special diet is prescribed by a physician for a student, the Director of Food Services will be glad to cooperate with the student’s needs. Under special circumstances (medical conditions), students may obtain a carryout tray. Students can be of assistance in the orderly operation of the University dining hall by observing the following:

  • Do not take food, beverages, dinnerware, or eating utensils from the dining room to any other area of the building or campus.

  • The exercise of care in returning dishes and other items to the service area will prevent breakage and, in turn, help insure lower student costs.

  • Since the dining room serves as an area for socializing and relaxing during mealtime, students must cooperate with the dining hall staff in maintaining the proper atmosphere; orderly conduct is expected.

  • No beverage containers are permitted in the dining hall.

  • Nothing is to be taken out of the dining hall.

  • The discipline of students in the cafeteria is under the authority of the Director of Food Services. Discipline problems will be referred to the Office of Student Life.
