Guide to Dining

Welcome to your Guide to Dining

Wheeling University dining services are managed by Aladdin, An Elior Company. Here at Wheeling University, we offer a program that meets the needs of today’s student. Each year you will experience exciting changes, fresh menus, and new enhancements to your dining program. These changes are a result of the feedback and input of many students and staff members.

Speak Up

This is YOUR dining service and we are here to serve you! We appreciate your input and feedback to better meet your needs. You can make your voice heard through comment cards or just introduce yourself and tell us what you think.

Special Dietary Needs

If you have special dietary needs, please consult with the Food Service Director. All efforts will be made to meet your special needs.

Meals On The Go

If a required school activity prohibits you from attending a meal(s), we will pack a meal(s) for you. Please have your department head or coach request your needs at least 24 hours in advance with the Dining Manager. ID will be needed when an order is picked up.

Going Green Eco Friendly To-Go

We will be offering our To-Go Meals in Eco-Friendly containers.  Take out containers are available upon request.  Reusable containers must be used to take advantage of this program at no charge, upon return of the container we will replace it with a clean one.  Any additional containers will be provided for a replacement cost of $5. This will contribute to our sustainability and to the freedom of the students leaving the dining hall.

Feeling bad?

We understand that there is nothing more miserable than being ill and unable to make it to meals.

If you are too ill to attend class or come to the Dining Room, you should obtain a special dietary request form from the Director of Dining Services. When presented to Aladdin personnel, along with your ID card, a take-out box will be provided.

Registered Dietician

We have a wealth of resources available to our guests, including the expert guidance of a registered dietitian. Arrangements can be made for individual consultations concerning any dietary need, such as sports nutrition, weight control, food allergies, or medically prescribed diets.

Lost Card Policy

You must present your ID card to the cashier each time you enter the Dining Hall. Please do not ask the cashier to admit you without your ID card. If you lose your ID card, you MUST purchase a new one. A sheet is provided in the Dining Hall for students to purchase the card. A $10 fee will be applied to your student account for every new card issued.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of having a Meal Plan?

Dining Services provides on campus dining options for students, faculty, staff, and guests at Capital University. When it comes to meals, leave the shopping, cooking, and cleaning to us — you will have more time for studying and social activities!

What if I have a friend visit this weekend, can they eat in the Dining Hall?
Absolutely! You’ll need to use your Flex Dollars, Cash, Check, or Credit to pay for their meal.
Why am I required to have a meal plan?
Residence halls on campus do not have kitchen facilities. Your microwave works well for popcorn, but it’s not sufficient to prepare well-balanced, nutritious meals. Having meals prepared for you allows you to focus on your education instead of trying to figure out what (or how!) to cook for dinner.
