Hofstra University Student Center Dining Renovations

Student Center Dining Renovations 2019:

The David S. Mack Student Center at Hofstra University will begin dining renovations summer 2019. The dining renovations will transform the dining and gathering space of the Atrium for the students, faculty, administration, staff and guest communities.

In partnership with Compass Dining Services the project is expected to begin late in May, after commencement, until the end of August 2019 just in time for the start of the fall academic semester. The new dining space will welcome a Starbucks Licensed Store, Brooklyn Slice Pizza, an upgraded Revolution Noodle & Sushi, Eli’s Dining and a new lounge for students to gather, study and recharge. For those who love Freshens, no need to worry, Freshens will have a new location in the Student Center main dining room with an upgraded menu, including a new frozen yogurt program.

The renovation will improve the aesthetic appeal, functionality and efficiency of the Student Center Atrium. The atrium will be more vibrant, visible and inviting to all who visit the building. Seating furniture is being replaced with functional and comfortable options, increasing overall seating capacity from 100 to 150. New rail seating at Brooklyn Slice will include charging stations, which are also being added to Revolution Noodle & Sushi, Starbucks and the lounge.

Dining During Renovation
The Student Center Café will remain open and accessible, directional signage will be located throughout the atrium guiding those who choose to dine. The main dining room will be available for seating. Additional dining that will be open are Bits n’ Bytes, located in Memorial Hall, a 3-minute walk from the Student Center, and Au Bon Pain.

Student Center Dining Renovations 2020:
Additional Student Center dining renovations will occur during the summer of 2020. The Student Center Café will be taken offline for the summer in order to renovate the servery, the kitchen, and introduce new culinary concepts while creating a NYC food hall atmosphere. Starting fall 2019, the Hofstra community will have the ability to provide feedback on what culinary concepts they would like to see included.
