Put a Fork in It: New Campus Dining Options in 2023

UHD Auxiliary Services’ Director Bob Browand announced several Dining Services changes for Spring 2023. 

  • New Food Choices: Pizza, breakfast tacos, and breakfast sandwiches? Yes, these items are now available at the Academic Building Food Court (Gator Bite Café).
  • New “GatorCash Incentive Dollars” Program: Let UHD put money in your GatorCash account with this new incentive program, designed to help offset the cost of eating on campus. 
  • BacktotheGrind“Boost Mobile Ordering” Refresh: Boost, the app that allows you to skip the lines by ordering and paying for your meal in advance online, is now available for Mondos Subs and Burger 713. To help promote this refresh, Auxiliary Services is running a special promotion for first-time users — use code UHD23 to get 15% off your first order!

Don’t forget the other new food concepts introduced last Fall:

  • Shea Street Café Express, a self-serve mini-mart opened on the first floor of the Marilyn Davies College of Business.
  • Two grand openings occurred: SciTech Café, featuring Peet’s Coffee, in the College of Sciences & Technology and Mondos Subs in the Gator Bite Café.
  • Nachos and ice cream returned to the Academic Building Food Court (Gator Bite Café).

Dust off your Gator Card and give one of these new dining options a try!
