univeristy of kentuckyLEXINGTON, KY – Amid many renovations around UK, students will also notice multiple additions and changes to Dining Services.

“It’s an uphill battle fighting to get students to notice what’s there,” said Scott Henry, executive director of Dining Services, referring to new food options on campus. “We’re trying some (new things).”

Newest additions Dickey Hall, near the Newtown Crossing Apartment complex, has recently opened a new restaurant that serves sandwiches, soups and salads.

Henry said a contest is underway to name the new cafe. The new dining location will cater to an underserved part of campus, he said.

The next closest on-campus restaurant was the Student Center.

Another new food option students will have on campus is Twisted, a university-owned food truck.

The truck will drive around campus and rotate four menus including Asian tacos, sliders, a Greek menu and an Asian noodle bar.

The location and menu of the food truck will be available on Twisted’s Twitter account, @ukyTWISTED.

Both Twisted and the cafe in Dickey Hall will accept Flex Dollars, Plus Account and cash, Henry said.

Dining updates On both North and South campus, students can now use meal swipes for breakfast at Blazer and Commons.

Henry said both dining locations will have Minute Maid smoothies, a burger of the day, international menus, and rotating options at the salad and deli bar.

Furthermore, the Quick Stop at Blazer will now feature a Coca-Cola Freestyle machine where people can customize their drinks.

Central campus Students will also have new options at the Student Center, Intermezzo and Fusion, all of which will now accept meal swipes.
