Have questions? We have answers.

Meal plans will begin August 10 and run through November 24.

No, all meals will be served to students. This includes the salad bar, desserts, and other stations.

If you are seeking allergen-free options check out Magnolias Zero7 at the King Family Commons Building. We provide a rotating menu for lunch and dinner. Have any questions or concerns? Contact our dietitian at s.roaten@tcu.edu.

Seating will be available but we will follow state and county guidelines for allowable occupancy.

Yes, though we will have outdoor seating options if allowable.

Yes, we will also ask students to use the hand sanitizer as they enter Market Square.

We plan to offer as many different menu options as possible. If we have to go to a strictly to-go plan, there will be some limitations to menus to allow for a reasonable speed of service. In all cases, we will have options to meet a wide variety of dietary needs and to provide meal options for any student who has food allergies.

We will still maintain our regular hours, but there will be periods of time between meal periods (breakfast – lunch – dinner) where menus may be limited so that we can do a deep cleaning.

We plan to keep all our locations open, so long as we do not have to go to a take out ONLY model. If this is the model we have to follow, we may need to close some locations or have limited hours at those locations.

Like all TCU employees, the dining staff will be asked to review a personal checklist before coming to work. Temperature checks, monitoring contact with others, required face coverings, hand washing and use of gloves will all be part of the measures taken by the staff.

Magnolias Zero7 has provided students and faculty with a simple, comfortable, and allergy-free area. At any meal, a student will be served scratch-made food free of soy, wheat, gluten, eggs, dairy, shellfish, tree nuts, and peanuts.

The Dining Committee works closely with TCU dining staff to provide student feedback on menu and payment options, the overall student dining experience, and dietary needs of students. More closely resembling an advocacy group than a legislative body, the Dining Committee works directly with Market Square and all retail locations on campus, providing students a direct line to the ears of TCU Dining, while constantly striving to provide a more satisfactory dining experience.
