The University of San Diego has always placed an emphasis on health and safety for our students, staff and guests.
The health and safety of our campus is paramount, and USD Hospitality Services will make data-informed decisions
based on the research, advice and regulatory protocols from state and county health officials, our own internal
expertise and national best practices.
Below are some of the unique protocols you need to be aware of when planning your catered events. As things may change on a daily basis, our protocols may also have to be adjusted. Thank you for your patience and understanding
as we work to keep you and your guests safe.
Key safety protocols we have implemented:
All service and culinary staff wear PPE (mask and gloves)
Masks are required to be worn inside of all campus buildings (through March 2022)
All culinary staff are provided with a professionally cleaned and sanitized uniform daily
Enhanced cleaning measures are implemented
Strict handwashing practices are enforced
Hand sanitizer stations are readily available upon request for your event
We begin with the best ingredients so that you can end with the ultimate catering experience. Even under the current protocols, the quality of our service and food product remains a top priority. We proudly serve food that is both delicious and environmentally thoughtful. Along with the flavorful side of our food, freshness and sustainability are key ingredients to our catering experience.
Our full Catering Menu will continue to be available. However, please keep in mind that we may need to adjust food items and service as necessary to meet COVID-19 protocols. If you prefer choices outside of our standard menu we will work with you to make your ideas a reality and customization will continue to be available.
We are pleased to announce that we have launched NetCatering, a new online ordering tool for internal campus clients. Initially we are offering breakfast options, beverage service and snack orders via NetCatering. For other catering orders you may continue to work with our catering sales office directly.
