Catering services in nearly all locations* can be arranged through DU Flavours by Sodexo, the University’s primary food service provider. Please visit the DU Flavourswebsite for more information, including menus and pricing.
*Sodexo catering services may not be arranged for events in the Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management (KSHM).
Outside catering services can only be arranged in campus locations that do not have an exclusive caterer. The following campus locations are exclusive to DU Flavours by Sodexo:
The Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management provides in-house exclusive catering services and therefore does not allow outside caterers either.
All other locations not mentioned above may allow outside catering services.
Alcohol policies vary between campus locations, so please check with your event scheduler for this information. In general, the catering exclusive locations listed above also own the venue’s liquor license. This means that alcohol may only be purchased from the caterer or entity owning the liquor license.
When working with an outside caterer in a non-catering-exclusive location, please keep in mind that alcohol should only be served by a licensed bartender. Additionally, if your event involves the SALE of alcohol, you will need to secure a Special Event Liquor License through the City and County of Denver.
Proper waste bins need to be ordered through Conversions for all campus events that have 10 or more attendees and food. Conversion orders should be clear about what type and how many bins are needed. Ordering waste bins is essential for the success of a zero waste event. Waste bins can be ordered through the Facilities Management Work Order website.
To learn more about limiting waste during events, please review the Zero Waste Event Guide for additional information.
