Haven Hall once had a dining center that had similar food to Ernie Davis. After Ernie Davis was built with a dining hall in fall of 2009, Haven Dining’s already low usage had become even lower. Haven Hall dining was eventually closed because of this. The has been discussion by Student Association and Office of Resident Life about wanting to make Haven’s empty dining space into a community space or to find a creative use for it. As of 2013 there are no plans to renovate this space.
The main dining option for Haven Hall residents is now Ernie Davis dining. Residents are also about five minutes away from Kimmel Dining, which differs from the buffet style of Dining Halls. Rather than using a meal plan, students pay for individual food items with cash, debit, credit, or SUper Card money. Food offered at Kimmel Dining include Sbarro pizza, KFC, Burger King, sandwiches, ice cream and grocery items such as soda and chips.
