  • SNU Dining Hall

    The SNU Dining Hall is located on the 3rd Floor of the Webster Commons Building.  With meal options as diverse as our campus, there is always something new to eat.  Our Culinary Department is constantly evolving to meet the needs of our campus while bringing current trends and regional influence to keep our program fresh.  Your first visit to our facility will be met with awe as you feast your eyes on our new salad bar featuring house-made soups and market-style salads.

    Our Sous Chef always welcomes our campus community with inspired dishes, gourmet sandwiches on freshly baked breads, traditional breakfast favorites, and an entirely new pizza program featuring a massive wood-fired brick oven. SNU Dining is open Monday-Friday 7:30 am-7:30 pm, with a modified brunch/dinner schedule available on the weekends. We accept traditional meal plans, dining dollars (“flex”), cash and credit cards.

    SNU dining is open continuously from 7:30 am – 7:30 pm, however there are hours in which the kitchen is transitioning to the next meal.  During these times, the salad bar, cereal, toast, etc. are still available while the kitchen is preparing hot food for the next meal.  Designated hours are:

    Monday thru Friday
    Breakfast -7:30 am – 9:30 am
    Lunch – 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
    Dinner – 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm

    Saturday & Sunday

    NOTE: Food or drink prepared or purchased outside of the SNU Dining Hall may not be brought into the dining hall area at any time.

  • The 405

    The 405 is completely unique and designed especially for you.  Our menu was created by SNU Dining and our Executive Chef, based on feedback from our campus community.  With a strong focus on crisp bold flavor, our modern Mexican concept has fresh produce delivered daily. Hand smashed guacamole, fish tacos, and our awesome salsa bar are just the beginning. The 405 also offers additional American style offerings for those looking for a change of pace.  A great place to hang out with friends, The 405 features fun games like ping pong, foosball, and pool.

    We accept dining dollars (“flex”), cash, and credit cards as well as offering a traditional meal swipe exchange program. Five meal exchanges may be used in a regular 5 day week, with a maximum of one exchange per meal period.

    M-Th 10:00 am – 11:00 pm
    Friday 10:00 am – 7:00 pm

    NOTE: Food or drink prepared or purchased from The 405 may not be taken into the SNU Dining Hall.
