UL Lafayette is feeding all campus residents for free.

This applies to students who remain in residence halls, Legacy Park, Cajun Village and the Heritage. They can eat in Cypress Lake Dining Hall at no cost.

Students who do not have a meal plan will be asked to sign in at the cashier’s desk, but they will not be billed for meals. Swipes can be used by those who have them. If a student doesn’t have adequate swipes, they will also be asked to sign in – but will not be charged.

The Brew will offer "to-go" breakfasts Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. - 11 a.m. and regular "to-go" options from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. Students on meal plans, residents who have been signing in at Cypress Lake Dining Hall, or anyone paying with declining balance, cash, or credit cards can take advantage of this breakfast option.

The dining hall’s hours of operations are:

Monday -Friday
11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
4 p.m. – 7 p.m.

Saturday and Sunday
11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
4 p.m. – 7 p.m.

Hours of operation may be adjusted as the semester continues, so watch for University notifications.

All meals will be served “to-go” as the University continues to encourage social distancing in an effort to maintain the health and wellbeing of the campus community.

Sodexo will have staff on hand to assist students who may have dietary restrictions.

Non-residential students who have meal plans and wish to continue to utilize campus dining may do so. Dining Services is prepared to support faculty, staff and students during this period. Of course, customers may also use cash, credit and debit cards.
