Dining Location Overview: Pines, Muir College

Located in Muir College, Pines serves the highest volume of students of all our Dining locations. Because it’s always busy, the food is always fresh!  It has several service stations that make your food to order, including a sandwich and taco bar.

Pines operates on a week-by-week cycle menu that changes every quarter. What’s a cycle menu? A cycle menu is one that offers different foods daily, and repeats itself after a certain period of time. Each campus Dining location operates on a different cycle, and it’s not uncommon for them to change the period of time on which the cycle operates, as well as individual menu items, each quarter.  Usually, they operate on a 3-4 week cycle menu, with some items changing on a weekly or daily basis. Remember! You can always find daily menus, ingredient lists, and nutritionals on our Dining website. Make sure to check it out, especially if you have specialized dining needs.
