UCCS is returning to in-person operations this fall, welcoming both returning and new students alike. Things will undoubtedly look a little different in our ever-changing environment, so we wanted to take some time to go over the changes we will be making to our operations in the auxiliary services for the general safety and health of the Mountain Lion community.
UCCS Dining and Hospitality Services remains committed to its mission of nourishing and engaging the UCCS population. In order to protect the safety and health of our campus community, all dining facilities have implemented safety, sanitation and social distance measures as determined by the El Paso County Health Department and the State of Colorado. All employees will be wearing face coverings at all times. All patrons must wear a face covering when entering a dining hall, while getting food and while disposing of dishes. Face coverings may only be removed while seated at your table.
To encourage social distancing, The Lodge and Roaring Fork will have a limited amount of seating available, with a maximum of four seats per table. In addition, All-Access Meal Plans will be accepted once per day at Café 65 located at the University Center or Alpine Express at Roaring Fork. If you are short on time in between classes during the lunch hour, we encourage you to eat at either of these locations and take your food to go. All food and beverages will be served in single service disposable service ware and will be available to take away.

Dining and Hospitality Services is excited to offer a new, convenient way to get your favorite food from your phone. Coming soon, download the Transact Mobile Ordering app from the App Store or Google Play Store and login to order all your favorites ahead, or schedule for pickup later, at Alpine Express, Clyde’s, UC Sanatorium Grounds, and the Hybl Café! The Transact Mobile Ordering app will be the only way to pay for orders at Clyde’s.
The physical Bookstore is open for orientations and limited walk-ins. Beginning August 10th, the UCCS Bookstore will be open for in-store shopping by appointment and with limitations, subject to change. As classes begin, all order pick-ups will be managed by an appointment app where you select a reservation window to arrive, in order to control line length and traffic, and accommodate personnel constraints, and capacity restrictions. The UCCS Bookstore will also be offering free on-campus delivery to all residence halls.
If you choose to shop physically in the store, in-store shopping will be managed by the same app to select an in-store shopping appointment, with limited walk-in customers based upon occupancy constraints. A face covering is required, and we are only able to accept debit/credit cards.
