Duke Dining

Get Involved

We strive to make dining at Duke an enjoyable experience. To that end, we are always searching for ways to improve menus, programs and services.

Tell us what you want, what you like, what you don’t like, and what just plain bugs you. It’s easy, doesn’t require much time and helps make a difference. Tells us your favorite and least favorite foods and eateries, along with other suggestions. We determine future menus based on feedback and spending habits.

Our online comment card is available here. You may also email us at dining@duke.edu, call us at 919-660-3900 or drop by our office, 042 Bryan Center from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday.

DUSDAC (Duke University Student Dining Advisory Committee)

Help enhance the dining experience at Duke by joining the Duke University Student Dining Advisory Committee (DUSDAC). Committee members play a key role working closely with Dining Services to discuss everything from menu changes to new eateries.

The committee operates under the auspices of Duke Student Government to foster communication between students, administrators, staff, vendors, prospective vendors and customers. The group is dedicated to helping Duke provide delicious food, fair prices, great customer service and clean, well-organized facilities. With your feedback, DUSDAC helps to rate on-campus eateries and Merchants on Points vendors on customer service and food quality. Each year, we present awards to eateries that excel.

If you think your great taste – and taste buds – could contribute to our mission, contact the Duke Dining office at 919-660-3900 or email: diningnetwork@studentaffairs.duke.edu.
