Dining Services

Our full-service, on-campus cafeteria, "The Unity," operated by Sodexo and located in San Ignacio Hall, is open throughout the academic year and summer sessions, providing healthy meal options and snacks for the SLU-Madrid community. Its hours of operation are posted on our webpage

The Madrid Campus has arranged with Sodexo, the following university-subsidized discounts for faculty and staff.

  • Discounted Lunches: On Fridays, the 5 € deal includes plato combinado, dessert, bread and drink.
  • Coffee Cards
  • Discounted Dining Credit Cards: Get 50 € of cafeteria for 40 € by pre-purchasing rechargeable dining credit cards.

Faculty/Staff planning events or meetings that require catering services should place their orders following the procedures outlined in "Events Organization," not directly through Sodexo.

Sodexo cares about the quality of its service and welcomes suggestions: fill out the online survey at the cash register.

The Madrid Campus also provides employees access to kitchen facilities (refrigerator, microwave, dish washer) for those who bring their own meals to campus, available in the faculty/staff lunchroom located in Padre Rubio Hall. In addition, faculty and staff have access to microwaves at the dining hall as well.

We ask that employees consume their meals in designated eating areas. While light snacks may be eaten at desks/workstations, officemates often find food odors in work areas unpleasant. Additionally, crumbs and spills can stain furniture and carpets as well as damage office equipment.

Employees are also asked to wash food containers and utensils in kitchen area sinks, not the restrooms.
