What’s new at The Eatery

The Eatery is back with an all-new look and concept. The University adopted a phased construction approach to renovating the largest dining facility on the Pittsburgh campus, and the project’s first iteration is complete and open for service.

Located in Litchfield Towers, the revamped space is a modern take on the dining hall — a fast-casual concept with made-to-order menu items and seating configured to promote social opportunities. Common seating areas also serve as gathering space for movie nights, game-day watch parties and even karaoke.

“The Eatery is more than a place to grab lunch; it’s a place designed to facilitate connection between diners,” said David DeJong, senior vice chancellor for business and operations. “Our goal is to enhance the student experience by creating places of community.”
