About Restaurant Operations:
Restaurant Operations offers the UWM community a wide variety of dining options.

We offer a vast range of foods, including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options. Across campus, there are a total of 27 places to choose from. On the run? That’s okay because, the Union’s Atrium Flour Shop is a great place to grab a snack before class. There are also a number of convenience stores on campus; Union Station which is located on the ground floor of the Union, and the RESTOR with healthy food options in Cambridge, Riverview, NWQ, and Sandburg. We also provide excellent catering services, from lunch on the run to elegant full service dinners. Restaurant Operations is proud to serve the UWM community to meet everyone’s needs with a vast spectrum of dining options.
