- Our locations will remain cash-free. You can swipe your ID or credit card or use a touchless mobile payment app (Apple Wallet, Google Pay, etc.) for purchases at any of our dining locations. Cash is only accepted for concessions at Ridley Athletic Complex and Reitz Arena.
- We will be following the state guidelines (currently Maryland is still allowing indoor dining & seating at 100% capacity) to make sure any seating area for dining is at the current guidelines.
- We know this list doesn’t touch all the areas of change that we will need to plan for, therefore we will add more details as Loyola’s plans evolve and we are able to solidify plans for dining options, hours, and additional considerations.
With things changing each day, and the continuous evolving circumstances, we ask that you be patient as our communication and plans roll out. If you have any questions or concerns that need addressed, the best method of contact is to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
