The University of Dayton

Catering Services is located at 1700 South Patterson Boulevard on the ground floor of Daniel J. Curran Place (Main campus location, second floor of Kennedy Union). Our team is comprised of full time chefs, full/part time staff and students. 

Whether an executive luncheon, or an end of the year reception, Catering Services is committed to creating an experience that radiates excellence. We strive to deliver quality food and services by promoting a welcoming and inclusive environment.
