The Blackburn College Dining Hall or “DING” as it is also known, is located in the Demuzio Campus Center (DCC). DING is arranged around destinations – action station areas that promote fun and excitement at everyday meals. Instead of all the food preparation occurring behind the scenes in a back kitchen, we bring the action of a kitchen to our guests.

This all-you-care-to-eat dining venue offers a variety of menu options. Food is produced from the freshest ingredients and prepared just for you. Choose from the Chef’s Table featuring traditional home-style entrées. The Grill is made to order classics such as burgers and chicken. Trattoria features personalized, artisan-style pizza, calzones, and pasta. Enjoy the Salad Station, along with an array of handcrafted desserts and beverages.

At this time, the dining hall is only open to members of the Blackburn community.
