An exciting perk about living in the residence halls is having a meal plan. Located on the first floor of the Wallace Residence center, Bobs Dining hall is convenient and full of dietary options.
Bob's Dining Hall has all you can eat stations including pizza, a hot grill serving up hamburgers, an extensive salad bar, a vegan/vegetarian station, a build your own sandwich station and much more. Our vegan/vegetarian station provides hot entree options. Bob's also provides hot meals for those with food allergies and dietary restrictions.
Simple Servings is a new area that serves meals free of the 8 major food allergens: shellfish, soy, dairy, gluten, eggs, tree nuts, peanuts and wheat. For any questions about dietary restrictions, please call the Vandals Dining office at 208-301-6070 or visit the Dining office on the second floor of Wallace Residence Center.
