Lumberjacks returning to campus for fall semester will discover a newly expanded University Union, featuring additional Hot Spot seating and a new Starbucks.

In addition to increased downstairs seating, the Hot Spot now offers second-floor dining making it easier to find a seat during peak periods.

Starbucks, which moved from its previous location in the Union to the expansion area, includes a larger service counter that will result in shorter lines and improved customer service.

The Wedge, a new convenience store selling made-to-order pizza, is slated to open in September.

Campus Dining hours of service during Welcome Week can be found here. Regular hours of service will resume on Aug. 28.
