From new restaurants to more convenience, there are many changes in the Tangeman Univeristy Center (TUC) Food Court this semester.

Qdoba becomes the first new location to open this week. The Mexican inspired restaurant begins serving Thursday, Oct. 15. 

Construction is underway on the new Panda Express location, which is scheduled to open in early 2021. It replaces MainStreet Pizza. Discussions are also underway for additional restaurants to join the Food Court and construction will begin on those locations in the coming weeks.

Another new development is the addition of Mobile Ordering for Chick-fil-A. Download the app and skip the line by placing the order ahead of time. To take advantage of Mobile Ordering:

  • Download the Transact Mobile Ordering App to your mobile device from the App Store or Google Play.
  • Select Cincinnati Campus
  • Place your first order.
  • "Check-in" for the staff to begin preparing your food.

Currently, only Chick-fil-A is available on the app. Plans are in place to add additional retail locations in the near future.
