Hillside Café

Hillside Café is conveniently located near the center of campus. It is the smallest dining center, which creates a tight-knit environment. If you’re craving a taste of home, this is the dining center for you! 

This semester, Hillside Café will have reduced hours of operation and be closed on weekends. On weekends, residents at Community/Duncan Dunn and Elmina White Honors residence halls will receive a 50% discount when they dine at our other two dining centers, Northside Café and Southside Café.
