The Spot “To Go” Policy

In order to promote a sustainable environment on campus, and to provide our busy resident students with the greatest dining flexibility, Bon Appetit will provide each resident student with a reusable “Eco-container” with a $5.00 deposit. The deposit is refundable at the end of the year when you return the to-go container in “usable condition.” If the container is lost, stolen or damaged thee $5.00 deposit is forfeited. If you do not wish to use the eco-to go tray you can purchase a one-time disposable tray for $0.50.

“To Go” Guidelines

  1. Bring in your dirty “Eco-container”  and exchange it for a clean one when you arrive at The Spot.
  2. You may either dine in, or takeout food during a meal period. You may not do both.
  3. Please be mindful of waste! Take only what you can reasonably eat.

Please know that the privilege of taking food out of The Spot can be revoked at any time at the discretion of Bon Appetit management and the Director of Housing and Residential Life.
