UofL opens WestSide Dining on Belknap Campus


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. – A new 450-seat dining facility opened today on the University of Louisville’s Belknap Campus, giving students vastly more food choices.

    The $3.8 million WestSide Dining operation is an all-you-can-eat facility, close to some of the university’s largest student residence halls. It will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner during the school year and is the primary dining hall for students with a meal plan.

    WestSide offers five different food stations under one roof: a deli, Mediterranean foods, a traditional American diner, international cuisine and a salad bar.

    UofL has been focused on boosting food quality and variety on its Belknap Campus. In the past three years, Damon’s Grill, McAlister’s Deli, Einstein Bros. Bagels, Jazzman’s Café and several small “quick stop” operations have been added. Several franchise restaurants remain on campus, including Papa John’s, Wendy’s, Subway and Chick-fil-A.

    WestSide is at the corner of Third and Brandeis streets and is open to the general public just like any local restaurant. Meals can be purchased at the door and range from $5 to $10.
