Washakie Dining Center

Washakie dining center exterior at night

Washakie Dining Center is the centerpiece of the residential dining program and social hub of the residence halls. Designed as a marketplace style dining facility, Washakie houses multiple serving platforms and provides a variety of options depending on your dietary needs. Our friendly staff strives to create and rotate new menu items often, and provides special dinners and chef showcases monthly. Vegan and Vegetarian options can be found at almost every serving platform and Gluten Friendly options are also available.

Washakie's operating hours and nutritional information can be found on this webpage or on the Residence Life & Dining Guide via the UWyo Guide mobile app. For more information on meal plans click here

If your schedule does not allow you to easily access Washakie during operating hours, you may be interested in our Swipe, Fill & Go program. Students with meal plans are given carabineers which can be traded in for a green "to-go" box,  filled to the brim with food, carried out and returned.
