We will gladly create personalized menus to meet special needs. We look forward to working with you to ensure the success of your event.
Groups are responsible for coordinating and reserving a location, and any tables or chairs needed.
We request that your catering arrangements be made no less than 48 hours in advance to ensure quality setup and service for your event. For orders submitted with less than 48 hours notice, a service charge may be incurred.
Internal university departments, student organizations, and affiliates may pay via Departmental Budget, Credit Card or check.
Standard catering orders come with disposable items (utensils, plates, napkins, cups, ice and tablecloths for the buffet tables.)
Events over $5,000 will require an advance signature approval prior to the event.
An additional cost will be added for events utilizing china and linens. Should you require additional linens, additional charges will apply.
We offer tablecloths, napkins and skirting. Given 1 week notice, we can order what is desired, at an additional charge. We use linen tablecloths with linen napkins. If no color is specified, white will be used. Skirting for non-food service tables costs $26.80 per table. Linen for nonfood tables costs $5.75 per table. There is an additional charge of $.70 for each person for cloth napkins. Paper table cloths for non-food tables are available for $3.65 each. Special china, silver service, etc. is available at an additional charge.
Since most of the financial planning involved in a special affair is based on a per person price, it is important to both you and Chartwells Dining Services that the expected count is as accurate as possible. Dining Services will plan and make commitments for all guests you indicate will attend. For this reason, Dining Services will bill you for the total count, whether or not all of your guests attend.
