Group Dining and University Departments

Currently, due to staffing shortages, we are not accepting external bookings for private dining spaces. Our apologies for any inconvenience. Please note that you cannot bring outside food or beverages, including cakes/desserts, into our dining locations on campus.

MSU departments may purchase a meal card for business purposes as outlined in the MSU Manual of Business Procedures. Cards are intended for groups of 30 or less. Meal cards are non-refundable and non-returnable. If you lose/misplace your card, a $10 per card reprint fee will apply.
