Due to the low campus populations related to the ongoing pandemic, UNI Dining will be closing a couple of the retail locations and reducing hours and operations at others. Maucker Union Food Court and Schindigs will not be open for the spring semester; hours at Chats and Essentials will be reduced; and 23rd Street Market will be offering fewer menu options. TC’s Takeout will also not reopen due to low utilization of that meal plan alternative. Thank you to the campus community for their understanding, patience and professionalism with these changes.
