About UMass Worcester Dining Commons
Under construction now, the new 87,000-square-foot Worcester Dining Commons is scheduled to be completed for the fall term of 2020. The building will contain the new Worcester Dining Commons, a ground-floor retail food café, the commercial bakery currently located at Hampden, and a restaurant, as well as support offices for Auxiliary Enterprises. It will also be home to a “neighborhood center” of student spaces, with lounges, meeting rooms, a fitness center, a contemplative space and music practice rooms.
The university is targeting LEED Gold environmental performance for the building.
