About Us

Michigan Dining is comprised of eleven on-campus cafés and eight markets, nine residential dining halls, a line of Blue to Go foods and the Michigan Catering unit. Our emphasis is on creative, healthy and nutritious foods, international cuisines and sustainability throughout all dining operations.

  • Smoke is one of the most popular restaurants at award-winning South Quad Dining. It features an authentic wood smoker and regularly serves up mouth-watering BBQ.

    Award-Winning Dining

    Michigan Dining has gained recognition from the National Association of College and University Food Service, winning numerous awards including Gold Awards for East Quad, South Quad and Fireside Café. MDining is also recognized nationally for its innovative online nutrition and allergy management program and its efforts to accommodate students with special dietary needs.

  • The UM Campus Farm provides fresh produce to Michigan Dining locations, meaning student-grown veggies are consumed by students on campus.

    Fresh and Local

    More than 38% of the food used by Michigan Dining is grown or processed in the State of Michigan. We purchase as much as we can from local farmers like the UM Campus Farm, whose student-run farm is just minutes away from Central Campus. You can find local foods by looking for the Local Foods label or other signage in our locations
