University Housing and Dining Catering

University Housing and Dining Catering proudly serves The University of Texas at Austin’s students, faculty, staff and event attendees. Our talented team of chefs, who work behind the scenes at our award-winning dining halls, are pleased to offer fresh, upscale catering options to suit all your event needs. From barbecue to house baked goods, we can accommodate any menu or dietary need. Please note, you can only use an outside caterer if your event requires a service that we do not currently provide. Prior approval is required.

Catered functions are billed based on a guaranteed number. The guarantee must be submitted, along with other planning information, at least ten days in advance of your event. Minor adjustments of up to 10 percent of the guaranteed number may be made up to three working days before the event. The final bill will be based on the guarantee or the actual number served, whichever is greater. The minimum for buffet service is 20 guests and a $50 minimum applies to all events. Menu prices include buffet style service, environmentally friendly compostable tableware, reusable flatware and one hour of service time for the event. If the event service time extends beyond the scheduled time, additional charges will be added. We can accommodate dietary requests but we require advance notice and there may be additional charges. For your safety, we prohibit guests from carrying out perishable food. If applicable, sales tax is added to the final bill.

At the time of booking, please be ready to provide the following information:

  • Number of guests (minimum of 20 people for any buffet)
  • Name and contact information for all information regarding the event
  • Date of the event
  • Starting, service and ending time of the event
