Columbia Dining Kicks Off The Academic Year With A New Website

Columbia Dining's new website, architected based on direct feedback from students, provides helpful new functionality and improved menu accuracy via an interface that is just as intuitive and user-centric on mobile devices as it is on desktops and laptops.

September 09, 2019

New and updated features include:

  • Menus with vibrant photos of meals.
    • Organized by station within each dining location, so you know exactly where to find what you're looking for.
    • View menus up to 7 days in advance.
    • View nutritional facts for meals at Dining's main locations.
    • Tally up the key facts about your meal, includes fat and protein content, by adding them to the food calculator. You can enter those totals into your nutritional or excercise app of choice, like MyFitnessPal.
  • An indicator showing the level of crowdedness for each of the main dining locations: John Jay Dining Hall, Ferris Booth Commons, and JJ's Place. See how long the lines are before you go!
  • JJ's Catering gets a new online ordering system, allowing students to place orders for events using their advisor's departmental chart string and automatically sending a request for approval to the adviser to expedite orders.
  • An expanded section providing detailed information about our Dining Plans.
  • More information about food allergies, special diets, and Columbia Dining's efforts to support sustainability at Columbia.
  • A new staff directory.
  • And more!
