Frequently Asked Questions
I live in a residence hall and I'm sick. How do I get my meals?
Dining Services partners with Housing and Residential Life for those times when you’re not feeling your best and cannot make it to the dining hall for a meal. Let us provide you with a Get Well Soon Meal. Simply download this "Get Well Soon" form and bring it to any RA. If you’re too ill to find an RA, have a friend bring it to an RA, or call the duty phone 906-487-DUTY (3889) and our Residential Life staff will visit you.
The form allows a friend to use your HuskyCard on your behalf to bring a meal from the dining hall back to your room. The regular dining options are available for you, but do not hesitate to ask one of our dining managers should you want something specific, such as a cup of soup with crackers. Don’t worry about the dishes, we provide convenient disposable containers and cups. If for any reason you’re not getting what you need to get better, please call Dining Services at 906-487-2685 or Housing and Residential Life at 906-487-2682. We we may not be your parents, but you are part of our Husky family.
I live in a residence hall and have meetings and/or classes during the entire meal period on a certain day. How can I get my meal?
