UD Dining Hall Gets a Makeover to Compete with Newer Dining Center
Kimmel Bogrette has partnered with the University of Delaware to transform the functional but uninspiring Russell Dining Hall into a dynamic and attractive dining venue that will keep students coming in despite the future opening of a brand new Dining Center on campus. The University wants to maintain a balance among campus dining facilities and not have students completely abandon the older dining halls like Russell when the new Dining Center is up and running. The renovated Russell Dining Court’s new features will include an increase in seats to 364, and a new pizza oven and chicken rotisserie. The entry sequence and servery will be re-configured to encourage more efficient circulation patterns.
